Pressure from citizens and hard questions from our local officials have prompted the Buccee’s developers to withdraw this project, which would have built a very large (100 pump) gas station, retail store, 120 room hotel, a retail/restaurant mini mall, 7 acres of road and 8 acres of parking – all draining into Sevenmile Creek, a major tributary of the Eno River.
“While development is important to our communities, it must be done in a way that fits with existing uses, current zoning designations, and preserves our natural assets. Efland Station’s plan didn’t fit, and we are satisfied with their decision to withdraw their application,” said Executive Director of the Eno River Association, Jessica Sheffield.
