Harnett County is beginning the process to create a Small Area Plan for the northwestern part of the County. The plan will look at the area between NC 210 to the east, the Cape Fear River to the south and the Wake County line to the north. The population of this area has grown by 56% since the year 2000. It remains primarily rural in nature but is increasingly experiencing increased growth pressure expanding from Fuquay-Varina and Wake County.
The planning effort will build on policies in the 2015 Comprehensive Growth Plan and focus on balancing the rural character of the area while accommodating growth and determining infrastructure needs. The outcome of this plan will be a revised land use plan to guide rezonings and recommendations that will guide public and private investment decisions for years to come. It is anticipated that this planning process will take approximately six months.
