— The Pittsboro Board of Commissioners will hear what will likely be a final round of public input on the huge Chatham Park project on May 20 at 7:30 p.m.

The board previously had planned to hold the hearing this week, but recently delayed it by a week due to a scheduling conflict.

The board likely will vote on the Chatham Park master plan in the weeks following the hearing. Approval of the plan would allow Preston Development Co. to begin limited construction on the 7,500-acre project that could bring 60,000 people and several new business parks to the town over a period of decades.
