Preserve Crab Creek
In 2021, Crab Creek neighbors and friends convinced a county board to stop a developer from building a giant storage facility in the heart of our community. It was a unanimous decision. In 2023, the North Carolina Superior Court upheld that decision.
This victory cost our community roughly $130,000. In also taught us that rural communities throughout the county are all vulnerable to development that threatens their beauty, tranquility, ecology, and cultural heritage. Having won our battle, we're closing our doors. But we'll maintain this site and the related Facebook page because they contain important history. And we'll always be happy to advise other communities facing similar issues.
