On Monday, the Town of Cary’s Planning and Zoning Board considered a proposal by Habitat Wake to build nine homes off of Trimble Avenue. After a lengthy public hearing, the board recommended that the Town Council deny our application for rezoning of the land. We were disappointed with the decision and consider it a setback to our mission of providing affordable homeownership opportunities for hardworking families. The case is scheduled for a vote by the Cary Town Council at their regular meeting on Thursday, May 25. Between now and then, Habitat Wake will continue to advocate for affordable housing with the Town of Cary and surrounding community. We need your voice to help us amplify the message! Everyone deserves a place to call home. Here are several ways to get involved: Sign on to our letter of support.
