DILWORTH — Developer Lincoln Harris is expected to learn Monday whether a proposed pharmacy that has upset some residents in the Dilworth neighborhood will win approval from the Charlotte City Council.
At a 4 p.m. zoning meeting, the council is expected to vote on the controversial Walgreens project, which has been proposed for the intersection of East Morehead Street and Kenilworth Avenue.
Charlotte-based Lincoln Harris has faced opposition from some Dilworth residents who said they worry about the project giving off too much light and increasing traffic in their neighborhood. Residents have also said the project violates the spirit — if not the letter — of a city plan for their area.
In October, the city’s zoning committee threw its support behind the project.
