The Wake County Board of Commissioners has approved the purchase of land for a new elementary school in Holly Springs scheduled to open in 2016.

Wake will pay up to $1.27 million for about 23.5 acres on the north side of Holly Springs New Hill Road, east of Green Oaks Parkway in Holly Springs.

Wake will also pay $645,000 for 21.5 acres near the intersection of Tarheel Club and Tarheel Clubhouse roads in east Raleigh.

School administrators cited growth in east Raleigh and Holly Springs as the reason both sites are needed.
