Many people have even felt that a few minutes more in commute has been well worth it! While the Town welcomes growth, leaders also are determined to control the quality and placement of new developments while preserving open space and creating public areas.
Like Apex, Holly Springs has a strong sense of community where people enjoy seasonal fun and activities like the annual Easter Egg Hunt, Holly Fest and the Happy Holly Days Parade!
