CHAPEL HILL -- Planning commissioners' recommendation for annexation of 54 acres was accepted Monday night by the town's Board of Mayor and Aldermen so they appear poised ready to finalize the ordinance next month.
It's an important step for the town, according to Alderman Bucko Bryant who on Wednesday noted that developer Ron Lampley has purchased $250,000 worth of water taps for the property on the south side of Eagleville Pike and east of Stevens Road.
The property might best be known as the farm owned by Curry Stammer, a well-known Chapel Hill area mechanic. Lampley has said he intends to name the new subdivisions Stammer Glenn and Stammer Farms.
Together, the two subdivisions could cover 54 acres, according to town records. The annexation ordinance was approved on the first of two votes Monday. A second and final vote could be on April 14 when the town board is scheduled to meet again.
