If Castle Hayne becomes a town, how will it affect Titan’s plans to build a cement plant?

It is unclear what, if any impact, changes in Castle Hayne will have on the Titan plant. Chris O’Keefe, the New Hanover County planning and inspections director, said in an email on June 14, 2011, that it depends on how fast Castle Hayne becomes a town and if or when Titan starts operations.

“Castle Hayne could create their own ordinance that could not allow that use on the land that Titan is planning to operate on,” O’Keefe said.

The N.C. Senate in June 2011 approved a bill to allow voters in the Castle Hayne area to decide in November 2011 whether to become a town.
