Planning Commission members this week approved a controversial seven-story apartment building for Hillsborough Street and a new middle school for North Raleigh. Rex hospital and Wake Tech’s north campus are expanding, and a Taco Bell is getting some repairs.
In a neck-and-neck race, incumbent Betty Lou Ward and newcomer Caroline Sullivan beat out their challengers for seats on the Wake County Board. Voters also approved the Wake Technical Community College bond.
County Commissioners are considering a general obligation bond to help Wake Technical Community College with a $210 million building program. But with County Schools also in need, commissioners have decisions to make about the county’s debt — and a possible future tax increase.
