Siler City, NC - The Siler City Board of Commissioners voted unanimously at its Monday, March 16 meeting to approve a request by the property owners to rezone the Chatham-Siler City Advanced Manufacturing Site. Previously zoned agricultural-residential (A-R), the 1,818-acre site is now heavy-industrial (H-I).
“Our primary goal is to attract an automotive assembly plant,” said Dianne Reid, Chatham Economic Development Corporation president. “Rezoning represents another vital step in readying the site for a future industrial user.”
“The Siler City Board last night demonstrated its desire to ensure the future economic wellbeing of its citizens,” said Mayor John Grimes. “The unanimous vote by the Board was special in that any automotive manufacturer and supporting industry can feel comfortable that they will be welcomed by Siler City when they come.”
According to Siler City’s Unified Development Ordinance, H-I “accommodate[s] enterprises engaged in the industrial, processing, creating, repairing, renovation, painting, cleaning, or assembling of goods, merchandise, or equipment.”
The Chatham-Siler City Advanced Manufacturing Site achieved state certification in June 2014. It is one of the largest sites in the state with certification. Visit chathamadvancedmanufacturing.com or call 919-542-8274 for more information.
