Over the past three months, the team has met with Town Council to review drafts of portions of the plan. Three work sessions have involved review and comment on several "special planning areas," (SPA's) which will have more detailed planning policies than the town as a whole. These various meetings covered the following topics: January 26: Eastern Cary Gateway Special Planning Area. The team shared preliminary concepts for the potential future development of an employment center in the eastern portion of Cary between NE Maynard Road and I-40 from Cary Towne Center north to Chapel Hill Road. January 28&29: Infill and Redevelopment issues. Since the vast majority of Cary is already developed or under development, this discussion focused on the general aspects of infill and redevelopment issues, the preliminary policies prepared thus far, and included a redevelopment exercise. February 23: Green Level (formerly Southwest Cary) SPA. The policy direction for the area west of I-540 to the Wake/Chatham county line was reviewed. March 8: Carpenter Special Planning Area. Land use and transportation aspects of this historic area were discussed.
