Shelton Station meeting Thursday night in Carrboro

Bookmark and Share

By Tammy Grubb

A neighborhood meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. tonight, Jan. 12, at Open Eye Cafe with the developers of Shelton Station, a mixed-use project proposed for 2.49 acres at 500 N. Greensboro St. in Carrboro.

Development representatives will be available to answer questions and provide more information about the project, which currently includes roughly 102 residential units and 25,000 square feet of commercial space in two buildings.

In November, the Carrboro Board of Aldermen held a public hearing for Shelton Station but postponed its decision. The board also amended the town’s B1(g) conditional zoning to allow more residential space in mixed-used projects downtown – a necessary step for approving the project. The new zoning would allow more residential space in exchange for environmentally sensitive building and site elements, like energy and water conservation, alternative transportation and affordable housing. It also requires a minimum of 20 percent commercial space.

The Shelton Station public hearing will continue at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 24.
