West Fayetteville, Neighborhood Market

Finally, the west side of Fayetteville is going to get a Neighborhood Market. Boy, I have been waiting 10 years to get one off of Wedington. I was really worried about having another big development put in on Wedington. The traffic is bad and other development would make it worse. We've got Lioneld Jordan to thank for making it happen. He worked with the developers and got them to complete Salem Road all the way to Persimmon Street during Phase I.
One of the conditions of approval is that the applicant construct Salem Road as a collector street from Wedington Drive to Persimmon Street in the first phase of the development.

This will take some of the traffic off of Wedington. I'm glad the developers worked with the city to make it happen.
