Pinehurst Land Use Notice

I don’t know any details other than what you see below but it looks like a nice mixed use project. It’s good to see mixed use as opposed to all the apartments and condos along 15th with nothing on the ground floor.

[EDIT:] It was pointed out that because the zoning is NC-40 and it’s […]

Charlie is a smartydog, […]

Donations for Pinehurstfest!

Pinehurstfest wouldn’t happen without all the wonderful volunteers (more about helping out here) but it also doesn’t happen without at least a bit of money.
