Village Green Decision Delayed
A recommendation on which landscape architect should be hired to change Pinehurst's Village Green has been delayed at least a couple of weeks.
A village commission appointed to advise the Village Council on what particular design would be desirable did not endorse a plan Tuesday as originally anticipated. If a recommendation was made, the council would have been expected to vote on it at an Oct. 28 meeting.
But commission chairman Bill Wetmore said by phone Monday that it would take more time to study the matter.
"We want to be sure that we've given everyone a chance to be heard," he said. "We want to take our time and do it correctly. We dont want to rush to judgment. We want to be sure we've done a thorough job."
Six landscape design firms have submitted proposals to transform the unoccupied 7.3 acres of land on the Green from an unmaintained wooded area into a community park that incorporates an open lawn.
The proposals were presented at two community information meetings held at the Fair Barn on Sept. 18. Residents spoke with the designers, and voted and commented on the different plans.
