North Carolina House members voted Monday evening to approve a bill that would force the City of Durham to annex the controversial 751 South development project and supply water and sewer service.

The vote was 76 to 33. The bill now heads back to the Senate for approval.

In 2010, Durham County Commissioners voted to rezone the project site, which allowed up to 1,300 homes and 600,000 square feet of commercial space.

The 751 South project includes 164 wooded acres bordering N.C. Highway 751 and Jordan Lake, near the Streets at Southpoint.
