Overlook at Riverside

Overview
The Town of Cramerton is currently reviewing a request for annexation and rezoning of approximately 479 acres off of S. New Hope Road.  This rezoning request would allow for up to:

  • 1070 single family homes including 275 townhomes
  • 80,000 square feet of retail/commercial uses
  • 100,000 square feet of office uses
  • 70 acres for a business park/light industrial use
  • 10 acres for public parks and expansion of municipal services
The Planning and Zoning Board reviewed this request at their meeting on February 18th and unanimously recommended approval of this rezoning request.  Due to COVID-19, the project has not moved forward in the process; Town Staff were awaiting guidance from the North Carolina General Assembly regarding holding public hearings virtually.  Now that the General Assembly has provided that guidance, the Town will move forward with holding public hearings for this rezoning request. 

Public Meetings
In order to comply with new rules regarding virtual Public Hearings, there will be 2 separate meetings scheduled to discuss this project.  First, a Public Hearing will be held on August 6, 2020 at 6pm located at the CB Huss Recreation Complex, 8 Julian Street, Cramerton, NC 28032.   You are invited to participate either in person at the date, time, and location stated above, or you may view/listen digitally using the credentials shown below.   Please note that if you attend in person, the Town will be following the Governor’s executive directives relating to requirements for reducing crowd sizes, social distancing and the wearing of masks.
