MINT HILL – Brian and Starr Haigler envision a conference and retreat center on 22 acres at 9518 Brief Road, but they’ll first have to ease concerns from neighbors.
Haigler, a pastor’s daughter, told town commissioners Oct. 12 during the quarterly developers’ workshop that the center would be similar to the Old Edwards Inn in Highlands. It would have a ministry focus, serving as a place for healing, according to minutes.
The project may consist of a house barn, annex and outdoor gathering areas that could house weddings, meetings and retreats. Future phases include cottages and spa, chapel and fitness center.
The Haiglers told commissioners they met with neighbors about the project. Two were concerned about the project in their backyard, while another worried about property values, according to minutes.
Leaders liked the project, but they wanted the Haiglers to address neighbor concerns.
