Winston-Salem City Council Meeting 3/3/14

The wintry conditions froze most of Winston-Salem Monday evening, but City Council members were ready for business as usual.

The item on the agenda receiving the most attention was the rezoning plan for a new retirement home.

The 32-acre property off Silas Creek and Bethabara Road had already been zoned for housing apartments and duplexes. The City-County Planning Board approved a proposal in January that would allow for 238 independent living units, 16 duplexes and a 100-bed nursing home.

Some of the main concerns for building a retirement home upstream from Historic Bethabara have been concern for increased flooding and excessive runoff.

The rezoning plan, requested by Nisbeth Family Limited Partnership, faced a public hearing. No one opposed the plan.

The Winston-Salem City Council members voted, and they were unanimous in their decision to approve the rezoning project.
