Aberdeen Boards Get Look at Developer's Plans
A preliminary concept plan for a 880-acre mixed use development to be located between Aberdeen and Pinebluff got a nod of approval Thursday night.
The Aberdeen Planning Board and board of commissioners on Thursday heard a brief, preliminary concept plan for Loblolly Plantation, a development that could feature two 18-hole golf courses, a golf academy, an Olympic-sized indoor swimming pool, a spa and fitness/wellness center, tennis courts, a performing arts center as well as residential and commercial development.
“Initially I like the idea,” said mayor Betsy Mofield.
"If it were to become a reality, it would be a great addition to Aberdeen,” said Commissioner Robbie Farrell.
Representatives from Hobbs Upchurch & Associates, on behalf of an Atlanta-based developer, presented the proposal to both boards during the meeting.
A similar presentation will be made on June 28 at a Pinebluff Town Council meeting.
An audience of about 50 people attended the meeting that was held at the Aberdeen Recreation Station.
