Dear Mayor and Members of the Cary Town Council,
At its last board meeting, the Friends of the Page-Walker Board of Directors approved the following resolution and is respectfully sending it to you and Northwoods Associates LLC for your thoughtful consideration.
Regarding the proposed downtown development by Northwoods Associates LLC at the corner of Chatham Street and Harrison Avenue, while the Friends’ board is supportive of downtown development, we request that:
The measure of a growing community is the well-managed and well-balanced combination of the historically significant and modern development.
The character of a growing community – its beating heart and soul – is the preservation of the historically significant, that anchors Cary residents’ sense of place and meaning while enlivening modern development.
A working partnership among the Cary Town Council, Northwoods Associates and the citizens of Cary could result in a thriving development that:
Thank you for your consideration.
Board of Directors
The Friends of the Page-Walker Hotel, Inc.
