BOILING SPRING LAKES, NC (WECT) – Boiling Spring Lakes town leaders have decided to reject a donation of a large chunk of land along the Highway 87 corridor.

The future of nearly 250 acres of land, formerly owned by Reeves Telecom, is now in question.

Two non-profit groups currently own the land but were hoping for the city of Boiling Spring Lakes to take over and develop the land commercially.

Accepting the proposal would have made the city responsible for paying nearly $1 million in sewer assessment fees.

The Board of Commissioners unanimously voted not to accept the land.
