Rezoning permit denied for townhome complex on Middle Sound Loop


NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Neighbors in the Ogden community can breathe a sigh of relief as a proposal to build a townhome complex has been denied.

The more than 3-acre property is located on Middle Sound Loop Road across from Ogden Elementary School.

It is currently zoned for six homes. The rezoning would have allowed 24 townhomes in six buildings to be built. 

Several members of the community attended Monday night’s county commission meeting to voice concerns about the proposal including traffic, child and pedestrian safety, stormwater runoff and more.

The rezoning was denied in a 4-1 vote.

Ahead of the vote, dozens protested over the weekend against the proposal.
