Cary residents raise concern about proposed shopping center

CARY, N.C. (WNCN) – Cary residents voiced concern Thursday night about a proposed new shopping center in town, saying the proposal would create traffic and noise that is unnecessary in the growing Triangle community.

The proposed shopping center would include a Publix, a Florida-based grocery chain that is making a major push into North Carolina.

One neighbor told the Town Council that 267 people have signed a petition to oppose a new shopping center in Cary.

The developers, Peggy and Grover Lewter of Cary, made their case to the Town Council in a rezoning request for 21 acres at the northwest corner of the intersection of Green Level Church Road and Carpenter Fire Station Road. The parcel of land is currently zoned for medium density.

Some neighbors asked those who are opposed to the shopping center to wear red to the meeting.

There is no time frame on the town making a decision.
