Coach’s press conference
Long-dormant plans for a sprawling golf community that would have redefined Southeast Raleigh are being resurrected without the links, possibly replaced by a grocery store, restaurants and shops in addition to single-family homes and a park.
���It could be a game-changer for a lot of people,��� said Lee Weaver, co-chairman of the Southeast Citizens Advisory Committee. ���The southeast part of Raleigh will be changed forever.���
A decade ago, the Olde Towne development on 600 acres in the far southeast corner of the city promised to revitalize an economically depressed area. But it fell victim to the recession and slipped into foreclosure, leaving behind land that had already been cleared for construction.
