MANCHESTER - This town's second-largest ever housing development edged a step closer to approval last week, as the Town Council approved an entrance road to the controversial project.
In approving a concept plan of the 179-unit, 61-acre Dell property project, the council gave a preliminary OK for an entrance road off Route 27. The project, located between Bachman Road and Route 27, is being developed by Mount Airy businessman Henry L. Blevins.
The approval of the entrance road was a necessary step in the project's progress, Mayor Elmer C. Lippy Jr. said. He said he expects the council to recommend its approval to the town's Planning and Zoning Commission.
