The plan for a new store in Burlington was approved Tuesday by the Mainland Planning Commission.

The 20,075 square foot store will be built at 10500 Canal Crossing and will connect directly to the Five Below retail store in the existing Canal Crossing mall.

A resident living near the site expressed concern that vehicle headlights were shining through the site’s fence, but she did not express opposition to the store.

In other business commissioners:

• Approval of a site for a 160-unit multi-family residential development called Clearwater Landing Apartments.

The development will be located on US 17, just north of the Camden County line. Apartments will cost between $1,500 and $1,900 per month.

• Approval of a site plan for a 20-unit multi-family development on an 8-acre site at 100 Cormacs Way called McGarvey Efficiency Phase IV.

• Unanimously approved a conditional use permit for One Road RV Resort. The 27-acre lot at 7256 Blythe Island Hwy. will have 125 RV spaces and 12 to 15 cabins. One resident, Rick Montgomery, expressed concern that clearing the site will increase the noise he can hear from traffic on Interstate 95 and devalue his property.

• Approval of an application for rezoning from agricultural forest to general residential for a 10.8-acre lot at 375 South Port Parkway, near exit 29.

Plans are for a townhouse community, with plans to rent out the units to begin with before selling individual homes later.

• Approval of a rezoning application to reconfigure an old hotel near Exit 36 ​​into an 87-unit multi-family apartment complex.

• Approval of a planned development district at 435 and 455 Walker Road with up to 16 single family homes approved to be built on the site.

• Approval of an amendment to the Majestic Oaks Planned Development District. The amendment gives the developer more flexibility in the design and layout of commercial, single-family and multi-family residential development.
