Hunt Property and Grifols Public Hearings on Nov. 7 Agenda


We hope you will join us Monday, Nov. 7 for the Clayton Town Council meeting beginning 6:30 p.m. in the Town Council Chambers of The Clayton Center, 111 East Second Street in Downtown Clayton.

The full agenda packet is too large to email, but you can view it online here. You can also download a PDF copy of the entire 123 page agenda.

Highlights include:

Recognition of Town Employees for Military Service

Ahead of Veterans Day on Nov. 11, the Town Council will take time to honor Town of Clayton employees who have served in the United States Armed Forces.

Public Hearings

North Carolina law provides for public input on certain matters - typically dealing with land use changes and new developments - before the Council takes its vote. The hearings are open to everyone to come share their opinions.

Here are the items on Monday's agenda for public comment:

Grifols Expansion Special-Use Permit

Grifols has requested a special-use permit to allow a building that exceeds our 50-foot height maximum. The global biopharmaceutical company wants to build a 71.6-foot tall plasma fractionation plant at its facility off U.S. 70 Business.

The plant would encompass more than 82,000 square feet. Plasma fractionation is the process of extracting the different proteins found in blood plasma for use in therapeutic and life-saving medicines. Grifols would construct the new plant next to its existing plant, which is one of the largest fractionation facilities in the world.

The Town of Clayton Fire Department, which would provide fire coverage to the new plant, has reviewed the proposal and has no issue with the height of the building. The Planning Board reviewed the request Sept. 26 and recommended it for approval.

Hunt Property (N.C. 42 East Mixed-Use Development) Annexations

The Council will hold a trio public hearings on voluntary annexation requests from three developments located on land commonly known as the Hunt Property. That land totals 45.75  acres and is located on the corner of N.C. 42 East and Glen Laurel Road. Last December, the Town Council approved rezoning and a master plan for the development.

The Hunt property has been broken into three pieces for separate development, and their annexations will be heard and considered separately. The future developments asking for annexation are:

  • The Pines at Glen Laurel: A 240-unit apartment complex on 20 acres submitted by The Pines at Glen Laurel LLC. The plans call for a clubhouse, pool, 10 three-story apartment buildings and 512 parking spaces. The Planning Board approved the site plan Dec. 28, 2015.
  • Glen Laurel Self-Storage: A self-storage operation on 4.98 acres submitted by Tellico Greens LLC. The plans call for one three-story building and two one-story building for a total of 120,900 square feet. The Planning Board approved the site plan Dec. 28, 2015.
  • The Shoppes at Glen Laurel: A 21.32-acre commercial and retail development. Petition of annexation submitted by The Shoppes at Glen Laurel LLC. The owner has yet to submit a site plan for Planning Board approval.

FEMA Relief for Hurricane Matthew

The Town Council will vote on a resolution that would officially request disaster relief funds from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the N.C. Division of Emergency Management for costs the Town incurred related to Hurricane Matthew - including the Town's preparation for, response during and clean up after the storm.

The Town does not know whether funds will be made available, but the resolution would position the Town to get money if it does.

Request to Close a Block of First Street on Nov. 23

One Compassion seeks permission to close the block of West First Street between North O'Neil and North Fayetteville streets - which is located behind the historic North Carolina Paper Co. building - on Wednesday, Nov. 23 from noon to 9 p.m. The group plans to serve hot meals to needy families and first responders from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.

One Compassion is the nonprofit arm of the companies partnering to renovate and occupy the North Carolina Paper Co. Building: One27Homes, Dakno Marketing and Jaclyn Smith Properties.
