New Proposed Developments for Wake Forest – August, 2014

It looks like this month will be a big one for developments near that part of town where the reservoir is.

Not only are two new developments proposed in that area but one of them will extend from Wait Avenue to Jones Dairy Road.

Also some big new sections are on the books for Traditions on E. Juniper Avenue. One of the phases, 2A, will back up directly on the homes on Jubilee Court, an area of older existing homes that have previously backed up to woods.

As part of my ongoing coverage of development plans under review, here is another. You can find all past stories, here.

Keep in mind these plans are currently under review and may have some changes and modifications as they go through that process with the Town of Wake Forest.

Traditions, Phase 2A (WCPIN# 1851-35-6014): A subdivision construction plan application to subdivide 18.6 acres into 77 single-family lots. This site is located on the north side of E. Juniper Ave. and was part of the original Traditions S/D. Existing zoning is CU GR-10. Applicant is JR McAdams.

  1. I used to live on the reservoir and the land is still family land, it has not been sold to developers!! It is a DISGRACE what is happening to our sweet little town. It is appauling what they are doing around the reservoir. Where are all these people coming from to buy these awful looking houses? I am always amazed at people thinking "oh my goodness I just have to live here". I can't imagine a house for $400,000 where there are no trees and you can shake hands with your neighbor while standing at your bedroom window. As I said in another article…I have lived here for 40 years….it is time to move…..I am planning it! Shame on the town planners and their greed. Why is NC so hell bent on making our state look just like New Jersey???? SHAMEFUL!!!!

  2. I agree – it IS time for you to move. The government you elected is "hell bent" on bringing highly skilled, educated people to the area to fill all of the newly created sci/tech jobs. All these awful new people like to live in good school zones and enjoy the small town atmosphere created by planned neighborhood developments. Having good jobs, they shamefully like to invest their salaries in shamefully appointed houses that you don't find aesthetically pleasing and can not afford. I for one am completely shocked that there is a bit of traffic during peak commuting times near a state capital. However, you lived here first – so you are more important than me. But don't worry, history is full of stories about how the native populations succeeded in times of change.

  3. More wild animals in our subdivision! I love animals, but they carry diseases and destroy private property. When is someone from the local Govt. Going to address the need to control the animal population, displaced by the continued development of our city? Please consider the woods that are being destroyed every week. Our natural areas greatly add to the beauty of this town.
