Veteran's Memorial land still in limbo

Moore County Commissioners haven't said yes, and they haven't said on to protecting land around the Vetran's Memorial in Carthage from commercial development. A committee representing veteran's this week requested that lawmakers designate the property as open space or for office-use only. Commissioner Tim Lea, who has criticized his colleagues for meeting behind close doors to discuss the sale of one-point-three acres to Bojangles, a fast-food franchise, was alone in dissenting to a motion ot create a committee of lawmakers and veterans to find a way ot satisfy all parties. Minutes of closed-door meetings have disclosed that commissioners had discussed selling county property to Bojangles for $280,000.00. This week, Charles Spelman, President of a Vietnam Veterans organization based in Moore County, produced aerial maps which included one of a parcel designated for Bojangles. County Manager Cary McSwain said the illustration was designed only to give people an understanding of what Bojangles wanted in relation to a land-use study.
