PELETIER Rezoning the 200-acre Silver Creek Golf Course for residential development is on hold because not enough town commissioners voted in favor of approval during the monthly meeting Monday in town hall.

The 3-2 vote was short one vote needed for final approval of the request by golf course owner Eddie McNeill, according to the Carteret County News-Times. Four commissioners would have had to vote in favor during the meeting for the rezoning to be approved.

A second vote will need to take place during the April 1 board meeting, when a 3-2 vote be sufficient to rezone the course from B-1, or general business, to R-20, which is residential with minimum lot size 20,000 square feet. If approved, up to 220 single-family home lots could be developed.

Commissioners Larry Rhue, Dan Taylor and David Bragg voted in favor of the request with Bill Norris and Alice Dunn voting against.

A public hearing was held in February, when commissioners tabled the proposal originally for R-15, which is 15,000-square-foot lots, which could have resulted in 335 residential lots.
