Volume 16, Number 8
There will be a Wake Forest Planning Board meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 1, but the agenda of public hearings will only deal with changes to the Unified Development Ordinance.
One was requested by Harris Teeter Properties LLC to amend the standards for gas and fueling stations in the neighborhood business district. The grocery store company is asking that the requirement that gas stations have a principal building be amended to read that “except when it is a use within a shopping center.”
The other hearing addresses small details within five sections of the UDO.
The meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the second-floor meeting chamber in Wake Forest Town Hall.

SM&E, a contractor working for the Town of Wake Forest, will begin performing soil borings in E. Carroll Joyner Park, 701 Harris Road, on Friday, July 28.
SM&E will drill 19 holes throughout the park to determine the makeup of subsurface soil conditions in preparation for Joyner Park Phase 2, including the new Joyner Park Community Center.
The work is expected to cause minimal disruption at the park, however, a few trees will be removed to accommodate the drill rig. All SM&E vehicles will be appropriately marked and all employees properly identified.
For more information, contact Facilities Director Mickey Rochelle at 919-435-9455 or email@example.com.
The Town of Wake Forest opened E. Carroll Joyner Park Phase I in August 2009. The 117-acre park is one of our area’s most popular outdoor destinations featuring three miles of paved walking trails, a 1,000-lawn-seat amphitheater and a performance garden. Phase 2 construction is scheduled to begin in 2018.
