HUNTERSVILLE — Carillon Assisted Living of Raleigh faces its first hurdle next week in its quest to rezone 4.5 acres on Commerce Center Drive so it can build an assisted-living facility in this fast-growing north Mecklenburg County town.
The town’s Board of Commissioners is expected to hold a public hearing at 6:30 p.m. Monday in Town Hall, 101 Huntersville Concord Road.
The land, zoned highway commercial, would have to be rezoned to neighborhood residential for the facility to be built, according to documents filed with the town’s planning department.
If constructed as planned, Carillon’s facility would be two stories and 40,500 square feet and be able to house up to 96 people.
The town’s planning department has backed the project, with two conditions, according to documents.
The department wants to make sure the facility does not interfere with future plans for a nearby greenway and that its parking lot allow access to both Commerce Centre and Paramount drives, according to Brad Priest, town planner.
The property is between Parkwood Apartments and Sherwood Forest subdivision.
Four & Associates of Huntersville owns the land, which Carillon would develop. Miller Landscape Architecture would design the building and grounds.
Carillon spokeswoman Michelle Taylor did not returns calls seeking project costs and other details.
