Kevin Sasser said Mebane has changed since he first began building homes and commercial developments in Alamance County during the late 1980s. The builder said he has seen Mebane’s market switch from Alamance County homebuyers to out-of-town residential and commercial clients looking to move to the area. “I would say businesses would be our driving force in Mebane,” Sasser said. “I think that Mebane has done a great job in planning for the growth and also promoting the growth. The industrial parks are attractive to us too because they bring people.” Sasser said he and his team presented renderings to the City of Mebane staff and received positive feedback. The builder said immediate support from the City made zoning one of the smoothest parts of the development.
