Millhouse Enterprise Zone and Light Industrial
Conditional Zoning District
The Town Council adopted the Light Industrial Conditional Zoning District (LI-CZD) and created the Millhouse Enterprise Zone last spring. The Council requested that the first year of the new zoning district be a pilot project with an opportunity for Council discussions on what has gone well and if the Council wanted to add the zone to other areas in Town. In the first year since creating the zone, the Town received one development application, Carolina Flex Park, located at 7000 and 7001 Millhouse Road.
