An agenda for the Sanford-Lee County Planning Department’s Technical Review Committee meeting on September 28 shows plans for a new Waffle House restaurant in Tramway and two new subdivisions totaling more than 350 homes.
The Waffle House is proposed for the intersection of U.S. 1 and Tramway Road, behind the Circle K and Dunkin’ Donuts locations in the area.
The subdivisions, Tucker Townes and Adams Village, are proposed for the intersection of West Garden Street and Firetower Road and the intersection of Lee Avenue and Wilson Road, respectively.
Tucker Townes would consist of “67 dwellings, including 25 rear-loaded townhomes fronting existing thoroughfares,” according to the agenda. Adams Village would be 300 homes total, with a mix of townhomes and single family residences.
The agenda also shows the committee will review proposals for a new 11,300 square foot manufacturing, science, and technology structure on the Pfizer campus, a Triangle Ready Mix concrete facility on Industrial Drive, and a proposal to use an existing building at 1715 Spring Lane, Spring Lane Assembly of God, for a residential group care facility called Sandhills Teen Challenge.
The Technical Review Committee is comprised of local officials from various city and county government entities representing Sanford, Lee County and Broadway. The committee meets monthly to review commercial projects and major subdivisions for compliance with the codes and policies of various local departments. Committee members make no guarantee that the projects submitted for review will be developed — only that they fall under compliance.
