Habitat Wake requests rezoning to add affordable housing in Cary
Habitat Wake is seeking to build 15 affordable homes in Cary off of Trimble Avenue. These would be a mix of single family detached houses and townhome units.
The surrounding neighbors have voiced concerns about the project and are planning to oppose rezoning of the land at a Town Council hearing on February 23rd.

We want to demonstrate to Council that there are also residents of Cary who support this affordable housing development. If you live in Cary, please help us pack the house at the hearing! At one point, we'll ask Cary residents in support of the project to stand.

Also, please consider signing on to our letter of support. You can add your name online at this link: http://bit.ly/SupportTrimble.

Thanks so much for your support and ongoing dedication to making affordable housing available in our community!
