The lawsuit filed against the Town of Southern Pines regarding the rezoning of property on Camp Easter Road for a new elementary school has been dismissed.

Plaintiffs Micheal and Jennifer O’Connor, who live near the new school site, and Defendant the Town Southern Pines have annouced that a settlement agreement has been reached following last weeks discussions.

The terms include concessions regarding the placement of a fence, potential location of the bus route and a construction trailer, and a limitation on the use of irrigation wells at the school site.  Because of these concessions, the O’Conners have dismissed their lawsuit. 

The dismissed lawsuit will allow the construction of the elementary school to stay on schedule.
