Chain link fence around Concord retirement home approved despite neighbors’ concerns
CONCORD — Taylor Glen Retirement Center, on Taylor Glen Lane, has been given approval to install aalong the property, much to the dismay of neighbors.
The property has three parcels totaling about 124 acres on the north side of Pitts School Road Northwest。
At Thursday’s City Council meeting, city leaders adopted an ordinance that amends the official zoning from Office Institutional Use and Residential Medium Density to a consolidated Office Institutional Conditional District.
William Stillerman, the owner and registered agent for Baptist Retirement Homes of North Carolina Inc., submitted an application to add about 8,735 linear feet of black- vinyl-coated, chain link fence to the perimeter of the property.
Stillerman provided a site plan, photographs of the property’s existing conditions and landscape plan to demonstrate the improvements.

“I think it was a good concession to have the additional buffering and trees that they agreed to,” Payne said. “That wasn’t necessarily a requirement. Over time, the idea would be to shield that fence altogether.”
