PITTSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Opponents of a 7,100-acre development project in Chatham County are suing the town of Pittsboro to try to stop it.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reports (https://bit.ly/1r02xuj ) that opponents of Chatham Park are asking a court to overturn the town’s approval of the project as well as the planned development ordinance its developer helped write.

Pittsboro commissions approved the rezoning and master plan for Chatham Park in June. The project between Pittsboro and Jordan Lake could eventually include 22,000 homes and 22 million square feet of office and retail space.

The chairwoman of opposition group Pittsboro Matter says the lawsuit aims to hold commissioners responsible for approving a project that will disrupt Pittsboro’s small-town atmosphere and natural surroundings. Amanda Robertson says environmental issues are the top concern.
