On August 11, Raleigh's The News & Observer reported on a proposed apartment complex in Garner, NC. The town's Planning Commission tabled a decision on zoning request to allow the developer an opportunity to educate nearby residents about changes to the plans.
Tom Johnson is representing Zimmer Development Company and appeared before Garner leaders. An excerpt from the N&O report:
Tom Johnson, an attorney with Nexen Pruet who was representing the developer, asked the commission to approve the plan to move forward to the town council.
“I think the things left to be addressed are truly minor,” Johnson said, “that I think we can address them between now and the council meeting. Obviously with any development project time is money. You also have contractual requirements that you have to meet.”
The main sticking point is related to the number of parking spaces for the complex. Garner's Planning Commission plans to reconsider the proposal at a meeting in September, once members of the community have had a chance to review the updated plans.
