What is Chatham Park?
Chatham Park Investors, a private development group, has submitted a Master Plan for an assemblage of approximately 7,120 acres consisting of 106 parcels located between the corporate limits of the Town of Pittsboro and the waters of the Haw River and Jordan Lake. The plan is currently under evaluation by the Town.
For scale: the current corporate limits of Pittsboro contains about 2,541 acres. Briar Chapel contains around 1,589 acres. The proposed development would be the size of 4.4 Briar Chapels in land area, and about 9 Briar Chapels by number of proposed dwelling units at the time of full build out.
After full build out, the project would likely increase Pittsboro's population from 4,000 currently to over 60,000 people.
Populations of other NC municipalities in this population range:
Rocky Mount 57,275
Chapel Hill 58,076
