A positive and welcome change has occurred on N.C. 211 West in West End, since my letter to the editor was published on Jan. 19, 2016.
Some of my concerns then: The old Stanley Building needed county intervention; a need for vigorous zoning; and West End as a gateway into Pinehurst.
Fast forward to January 2020. The old Stanley Building is coming down. The county is considering a new land-use plan. Plans are in the making to protect the Western Gateway into Pinehurst. Visitors observe a much neater West End on 211. A county commissioner has taken action.
County Commissioner Louis Gregory, who lives in Seven Lakes, has been instrumental in seeing the above actions take place. His leadership, respect and endurance have helped implement the progress that has occurred in this vital district of Moore County during the past two years, and I am confident with this commissioner’s leadership, progress will continue throughout Moore County.
Commissioner Louis Gregory, you have made many people happy with the ongoing positive results of West End and surrounding areas.
Betty Milligan, Greenville, SC
