Chatham County, NC - According to the Land Use study released on March 7 by the Operations Research and Education Laboratory Institute for Transportation Research and Education at NC State there are to be a projected 19,000 new homes built in Chatham County by 2020.

The breakdown of new home totals by elementary school attendance area is

· JS Waters – 12

· Silk Hope – 46

· Siler City Elementary/Chatham Middle – 517

· Virginia Cross - no numbers. Study was done while school was being built.

· North Chatham School - 3,485

· Perry Harrison - 3,027

· Pittsboro Elementary/Horton Middle* - 11,944

Grand Total - 19,031

*Pittsboro data did not have Pittsboro Place numbers.

Using the study figures we can project a sizable impact of the Chatham County School system. According to the 2003 US Census Data average number of school age children per 100 households for new homes is 73.8

Therefore, 19,000 homes x .73 school age kids per home equal an additional 14,000 school age kids.

The Land Use Study not only describes the relative level and location of growth that has occurred since the previous land use study was published in 2004, but also the growth that is anticipated in Chatham County.

The information on existing and proposed county subdivisions is grouped by elementary school attendance area.

The study is available at Chatham County Schools web site. (click on link)

P The Parks at Meadowview (formerly known as Meadowview, and initially known as Buck Mountain II): 739 units on approximately 1,100 acres, located immediately south of

P Powell Place (in the Town of Pittsboro): this development is three years into its construction, and is on schedule for a planned seven-year buildout.
