Guess and Landis –  STORAGE UNITS

Horvath Associates offer: NOT ONE SINGLE POSITIVE THING

UPDATE: Horvath Associates plan to apply for rezoning as “LIGHT INDUSTRIAL” – a meeting will be held on June 13. This website will report the results.

Horvath Associates held a meeting regarding the proposed rezoning of the land across from Guess & Landis at 6:30 PM, on Wednesday, November 28th.  

Pressed repeatedly to name any single positive thing the development has to offer the community, there was no answer. In terms of planning, is it a use that does a public good? The answer, clearly, is NO.

The North Durham Quality Development Association opposes the development presented by Horvath Associates. We will use all the resources available to us to prevent approval of the rezoning request by the City Planning Commission and by the City Council.

Stay tuned to this website, and join us on facebook to stay updated.

The North Durham Quality Development Association opposes the development presented by Horvath Associates in the public meeting of October 24, 2018. We will use all the resources available to us to prevent approval of the rezoning request by the City Planning Commission and by the City Council.

In the meeting, the developers said that they would withdraw the proposal “if everyone’s against it, well then it doesn’t look like it’s going to pass, because I don’t think the city council’s going to want that.” We hope that they will stick to their word.

This is not the kind of development we want in our community, nor is it the kind of development allowed by the Unified Development Ordinance.

Let Horvath Associates know how you feel about their proposed development by contacting:
