Harnett County Projects

(The Sanford Herald)

A new development with 54 single family lots will soon see construction in north west Harnett County. Construction on the first home as West Preserve will begin this Spring. The neighborhood is located five miles south of Sanford and 16 miles north of Spring Lake and will have easy access to NC 87.

Weaver Homes will be spearheading the project. The West Preserve neighborhood, situated on McDougald Road, in miles east of NC 87, the major North-South corridor between Sanford and Fayetteville/Fort Bragg.

“Drive times are reasonable” Frank Weaver said. “So you can work in Fayetteville or Raleigh, but live away from the city pressure.”

Lot sizes in the neighborhood will range from half-acre lots up to 1.5 acres. The development also has high-speed fiber optic internet service. Marketing for West Preserve is handled by Tony Weaver with Property Pros Group and Coldwell Banker Advantage.

Harnett Regional Jetport broke ground on a new 5.1 million terminal.

“Today is a great day for aviation in Harnett County,” said County Commissioner Lew Weatherspoon, who opened the program in a hangar at the airport.

Demolition of the existing terminal, which opened in 1981, is expected to begin at the end of this month. The new building is scheduled to be complete by March of 2024.

Sen. Jim Burgin cited the airport’s expansion as the “first part of the long-term plan to make Harnett County a place people want to be.”

He said 64% of Harnett County’s workforce now leaves the county to reach their jobs. Airport improvements, he said, can help attract new employers to address that problem.

The new building, at over 7,300 square-feet, will also house Harnett County Economic Development, which works with new and existing employers to bring jobs to the county.
