The Pinehurst Village Council voted Tuesday to extend the moratorium on new development within the NewCore service district through Feb. 13.
The council will hold a public hearing at 1 p.m. Nov. 28 on rezoning the 19-acre area, including Dundee and McIntyre roads, to a new zoning district that would encompass the entire original "service district." The existing area has a variety of zoning uses.
The public hearing will be held in the Vilage Assembly Hall.
Also up for public hearing Nov. 28 is the assessment roll for properties in the Municipal Service District. The Village Council and a majority of district property owners have agreed to split the cost of required dam rehabilitation in the district, with the MSD owners paying annual assessments for 15 years.
The project will cost more than $0.5 million.
The dam is owned by the village under an agreement formed 16 years ago between property owners, the village and Pinehurst Inc.
Natalie Dean, assistant manager and finance officer in the village, told the council that individual property owners will be notified of how much they will be assessed prior to the public hearing.
In other news Tuesday, the village announced that John Frye, a Certified Public Accountant and Moore County native, will become the new financial services director, starting Dec. 4.
