Planning Board to consider new apartment complex on South Main Street
SALISBURY — The Salisbury Planning Board will consider an apartment complex proposed for the 2000 block of South Main Street at Dodd Street when members meet at 4 p.m. Tuesday.
Karen Perry of KRP Investment LLC, based in Clemmons, has an option to buy 5 acres from John Leatherman of Salisbury for the apartments, called Abbington Court of Salisbury. She plans to rent the 80 apartments to “working families” with incomes in the range of starting pay for teachers, firefighters and police officers.
The deal hinges on whether the project wins tax credit financing in August. Perry and Leatherman will ask the planning board to recommend a conditional district rezoning to Salisbury City Council.
The meeting, which will be held in City Hall at 207 S. Main St., will include a courtesy hearing.
Planning board members also will consider a text amendment to the sidewalk program and hear a committee reports on secondary dwellings like mother-in-law suites, the I-85 corridor study and nominations for chairman and vice chairman.
