Pike Files An Appeal Against the Re-Zoning of Business Park

Pike Industries has gone to court to appeal the City Council's decision to
rezone the Five Star Industrial Park in a way that would restrict Pike's
operation of its quarry there. Lawyers for the company filed the appeal in
Cumberland County Superior Court on Wednesday to challenge the city's enactment
of the new zoning, which they say would put Pike out of business. Tony Buxton, a
lawyer representing Pike, said the zoning is illegal and conflicts with the
city's comprehensive plan. He said it would prevent Pike from using its property
in a way that it believes it has a constitutional right to continue.
