Eastover residents hope to incorporate

11 posts in this topic

I use to disagree about this subject, but now I understand thats all their trying to do is give new cumberland county residents more options to live. If you want a more city life pick Fayetteville & Eastover is a more community like area (everybody knows you). They want to create smart growth for town which basically makes sense when I-295 is complete.

I think that you might find the attached article in today's Fayetteville Observer interesting. It is talking about how Cumberland County's rural characteristics is changing. It talks about the Eastover, Linden, and Grays Creek Communities. Here is the link:

Also, in today's Fayetteville Observer is an article about one of Fayetteville's local Representatives supporting the Eastover incorporation. Here is this link:

Eastover will really take off in development once retail gets built off Future 295 like around US 13 and US 301 (north of Business 95).

Here is an update regarding Eastover's incorporation. Interesting how Fayetteville is now starting to talk with Eastover representatives. I believe that Fayetteville realizes that Eastover will be allowed to incorporate, so with the new talks and reduction of Eastover's proposed city limits, Fayetteville just might support Eastover's plan. Also, the debate continues in Raleigh over annexations, and I believe that local representatives can gather enough support from others regarding Eastover's incorporation.

Here is a link from The Fayetteville Observer regarding latest information.

None of that stuff will really matter anyway because Fayetteville will keep on developing east of the river.

The following article in today's Fayetteville Observer indicates that the bill intorduced by Rep. Glazier will be voted on in July for Eastover's incorporation. The artilce indicates that the incorporation should get approved and that residents will be voting in November for a town council. I am very excited about this news considering I will become a resident of Eastover. Unfortunately Eastover's original boundaries have been reduced by 7 square miles and the population reduced by 1,500. However, this is certainly exciting news. Fayetteville and Eastover were able to work out a happy/medium and in the end Fayetteville did sign off on supporting Eastover's incorporation. Honestly, a total shocker. Alot of the areas that were originally in Eastover's limits, are more than likely going to be annexed by Fayetteville, and these areas are of course the developing areas between Eastover and the Cape Fear River.

According to today's Fayetteville Observer, Eastover is one step closer to becoming incorporated. It appears one hurdle remains, and that House approved Eastover's request with the NC Senate yet to vote on the matter.
