Hours of testimony and no resolution

By Heather Berry

Weaverville – For approximately eight hours Monday evening, the Weaverville Zoning Board of Adjustment listened to testimonies from both sides of the heated Lake Louise development debate during a public hearing, which, according to state law, is treated as a court of law. After listening to testimonies, the board decided to continue attorney closing remarks, along with a decision for Wednesday, Oct. 19.

“The good news is, ‘We are not going to drain the lake, and we’re not going to fill it in, and we’re not going to reduce the size of the lake or the park,” developer Greg Phillips told the board as he defended the 21-home residential development his company, Mayfair Properties, has planned for the corner of Quarry Road and Lakeshore Drive.Read more...
