Raleigh-area owners hope the next home for the massive painting depicting the Civil War battle at Gettysburg is someplace that can properly display it. When fully extended, the canvas is nearly 400 feet long and several stories tall.
When a landowner seeks to rezone his property, neighbors can sign a protest petition. If enough neighbors sign the petition, state law mandates that a city council needs a super-majority to approve the rezoning request rather than a simple majority.
The Cary Town Council voted 5-1 to approve a rezoning request by Maryland-based GB Development Consulting Company that will eventually bring 130 homes to more than 58 acres on Wackena Road, located between N.C. 55 and N.C. 540.
