Class B Special Use Permit – Orange County Lacrosse
Orange County Planning staff has received a Class B Special Use Permit (SUP) application proposing a new lacrosse facility, Orange County Lacrosse, on Atkins Road. You are receiving this letter because property you own is within 1,000 ft. of the lacrosse property, which is further described as follows:
Parcel Identification Number (PIN)
Chakey, Pedneau, and Olive, LLC
On Atkins Road near the intersection of NC 49 and Lynch Store Road
Recreational Facility (Class B SUP Required)
Agricultural Residential (AR)
Back Creek Protected Watershed
The applicant is proposing a privately-owned outdoor recreational facility for lacrosse league practice and tournaments. If approved, the facility will include the following features:
- 6 grass lacrosse fields;
- 281 parking spaces (72 paved and 209 gravel); and
- A 100’ wide vegetative buffer around the perimeter of the property.
The applicant is not proposing any outdoor lighting or permanent restroom facilities (i.e., septic systems). With no lighting, the facility would operate during daylight hours only.
There will be a Neighborhood Information Meeting (NIM) on Tuesday, December 17th. The meeting will allow neighbors to meet with the applicants and discuss the proposed project. It will also give Planning staff the opportunity to answer any questions regarding the permitting process.
Here are the details for the Orange County Lacrosse NIM:
NIM Meeting Date
Tuesday, December 17, 2019
Orange County Library
137 W. Margaret Lane
Hillsborough, NC 27278
After the NIM, the Orange County Board of Adjustment will hold a Quasi-Judicial Hearing to decide the Class B SUP case. We will update the website when an official hearing date is scheduled.
