Rolesville board denies potential housing complex

ROLESVILLE — A second plan for a property was denied by the town board.

A rezoning application was made in December for 12.43 acres located at Wait Avenue with a plan of 52 single family homes at a density of 4.2 units per acre. During a planning board meeting May 23, the board unanimously recommended a denial, as discussion centered on the type of residential dwellings, site preparation, design aspects of proposed buildings and trip generation.

“The plan for the land was denied a year ago and the developer came back with another proposal,” Rolesville Town Manager Kelly Arnold said. “The biggest concerns were the density and traffic, so the board decided not to approve it.”

The next Rolesville town board meeting is Tuesday, August 2.
