Siler City’s spring litter sweep set

SILER CITY — Community involvement is a key element as the Siler City area continues to work to attract and retain residents, visitors, businesses, and industry. To that end, organizers are preparing for Siler City’s spring litter sweep.

“This year, we hope to have a greater impact on the appearance of Siler City by identifying more projects and recruiting more help,” said Jack Meadows, the town’s planning and community development director.

The Siler City Development Organization and the Town of Siler City Police Department invite people to participate by:

• Volunteering as a coordinator or team member for one of the identified streets (see attached project list);

• Identifying a new street and volunteering as the project coordinator; and/or

• Sharing this effort with family, friends, neighbors, churches, schools, civic groups, businesses, local industry, etc.

The spring litter sweep dates run through April 24. This litter sweep period is consistent with the NCDOT spring litter sweep. The Town of Siler City and NCDOT provide safety vests, gloves, and trash bags during this period. Previous cleanups have been facilitated by SCDO annually since 2014.

Everyone is encouraged to take advantage of this community service opportunity. If you have questions, contact Meadows at 919-742-2323 or

Carolina Brewery in Pittsboro Offers Dine & Donate to Benefit CARE

PITTSBORO — Pittsboro’s Carolina Brewery is helping the Chatham Animal Rescue and Education (CARE) organization by offering Dine & Donate.

Every third Monday of the month starting on April 19, 5% of the day’s sales, including dining in or take out, will go to CARE to help dogs and cats in Chatham County get the veterinarian care, food and supplies they need while looking for their forever homes.

“CARE is very appreciative to have such a wonderful community outreach from the folks at Carolina Brewery. We are so fortunate to have them support our organization,” said Patricia Stancati, CARE board member and chairperson of the marketing and fundraising committee.

For those who are looking for an easy way to help CARE, please mark your calendars and go to the Carolina Brewery for a great meal!

Future dates include April 19, May 17, June 21, July 19 and August 16.

Both organizations hope that as restrictions ease and the weather is conducive, they will resume Yappy Hour, a fun-filled event held on the patio at Carolina Brewery. People come have a beer and some appetizers and bring their well-behaved dogs to socialize and have some fun! More details will come at a later date.

Kane Realty to manage Mosaic at Chatham Park

PITTSBORO — The development team of Mosaic at Chatham Park has selected Kane Realty Corporation to manage the project and lease The Guild apartment homes for the 44-acre mixed-use development under construction in Pittsboro.

Mosaic serves as the commercial gateway to Chatham Park, a 7,100-acre live-work-play-learn community. Offering an urban lifestyle in a suburban environment, this community features 200,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, 88,000 square feet of office space, a Hampton Inn & Suites, and education and entertainment venues as well as The Guild apartment homes and Tessera at Mosaic luxury condos.

“Momentum continues to build at MOSAIC at Chatham Park as we open buildings and welcome our first guests this summer,” said Mosaic developer Kirk Bradley. “Partnering with Kane, a reputable firm with proven expertise and a knowledgeable team, enables us to create the community energy and offer the unique experiences we envisioned from day one.”

As an established leader in the property management industry for over 35 years, Kane Realty is responsible for the day-to-day management and operational duties at MOSAIC for both the residential and commercial components. Through its singular focus on customer service and resident loyalty, Kane Realty has earned an unmatched ability to foster a sense of community, which has resulted in national recognition by J. Turner for outstanding online reputation.

“Kane specializes in creating beautiful, inviting places where people want to live, work, shop, dine, and gather,” said Bonnie Moser, director of Kane Residential. “Business owners, residents, and visitors alike will notice the Kane difference as they experience MOSAIC. We are excited to partner with this team to bring this type of urban lifestyle destination to Pittsboro and build a welcoming community together.”

Moser, along with Frances Dunn, regional manager, will oversee all multi-family operations and management for The Guild rental community, including marketing, leasing, budgeting, and hiring of an on-site management team. “Kane’s unique recruitment philosophy – hiring first for character, second for ability, and third for experience – will create a team of dedicated, engaged, and motivated employees who are passionate about delivering an exceptional experience for all who live, work, and gather at Mosaic,” concludes Moser.

Construction continues with the first three buildings expected to be complete this Summer with more underway prior to year-end. Kane’s management of the property will start in July with Mosaic’s event lawn opening in late September followed by planned programming.

Kane Realty is well known in the Triangle region, most prominently for its development of North Hills in the Midtown District of Raleigh. The firm also recently announced a 33-acre, $1 billion North Hills Innovation District, expanding the footprint of North Hills to 120+ acres.
