That property and a whole bunch of others near it are already in the city limits. The NC legislature should do away with all of this spot annexing. If you want one property you should have to take all of the properties.

If anyone is familiar with how fast Monkey Junction developed about 8-10 years ago...I foresee this happening at the new Wal-Mart area. With the Lowes and Food Lion already there, just wait until the restaurants start coming in...one will follow the other...

How many outparcels are set up in that development now?

Good news for the PGV!

The Pitt-Greenville Airport Authority will receive a $3.5 million grant from the Federal Aviation Administration to make runway improvements, the airport director said Wednesday.

“We’re pleased that the FAA recognizes that this is an important project for our community and made it a priority,” Jerry Vickers, manager of the airport, said. “We were concerned that federal sequestration might slide funding for the project into more of a piecemeal approach, but the full funding will allow us to move forward on this phase, including moving the utilities and purchasing the easements to remove the trees and possibly the properties, then doing the construction preparations this fall.”


The airport runway must be extended 670 feet on the north end to meet new FAA runway safety requirements of an additional 1,000 feet.

Extension space is not available on the runway’s south end near the Tar River and North Memorial Drive due to wetlands and the proximity to the highway.

Airport officials are engaged in negotiations with property owners beside the airport’s north end for the necessary easements which will allow trees in the new runway protection zone to be removed. Some owners have voluntarily negotiated sale of their properties. Others have chosen to remain and negotiate easements only, Vickers said.

The preliminary construction schedule for this fall will involve relocation of several major utility lines so the runway extension will not pass over them, Vickers said.

“If something happens to the utility lines, we don’t want to have to tear the runway up for access to the lines, so this first project will relocate all those utilities to a place more than 1,000 feet beyond the end of the extended runway where work can safely be done,” Vickers said.

The airport is guaranteed about $1 million in grants annually under federal guidelines.

“The remaining $2.5 million comes from a discretionary pot that airports compete for,” Vickers said. “Safety-related projects like this runway extension, required to meet new FAA standards, are given the highest priority.”

The federal appropriations sequestration that was created in January when lawmakers in Washington, D.C., could not reach a budget agreement threatened the airport’s funding and construction schedule, Vickers said.

A $5 million grant next year is anticipated to do the actual runway construction, expected to be completed in 2014, Vickers said.

U.S. Senator Kay Hagan announced Wednesday’s FAA grant in Washington.

“This grant will make the Pitt-Greenville Airport a safer place for travelers and workers,” Hagan said. “It is critically important that we continue to invest in infrastructure such as our local airports that both boost the North Carolina economy and employ many North Carolinians.”

Not sure how good Rouse Properties is, but anything has to be better than the current management.
