HUNTERSVILLE – An “enterprise center” that would be a key component of a plan to revitalize the ramshackle trailer-park neighborhood of Huntington Green has run into opposition from a handful of the residents the nonprofit behind the project hopes to ...Read More »
For a portion of the Indian Trail Town Council meeting Tuesday night, it seemed like a sanctioned parade for the proposed Monroe Bypass. Officials from state, county and local organizations raved about how the 19.7-mile toll road that would run from Stallings to Marshville would boost economic viability on U.S. Highway 74. They made a good case for the bypass, spouting facts about long commute times, heavy tractor-trailer use and how local businesses would benefit. But the opposition to the scrutinized bypass proposal wasn’t invited to speak at the council meeting, making the job easier.

Monroe Bypass divides Union County communities: DOT suspends work but continues payments to contractors, including one facing unrelated felony charges
State and federal transportation officials are putting the final touches on a second draft environmental report on the proposed Monroe Bypass, as nearby towns debate the project’s merits. Meanwhile, a lead bypass construction contractor continues to collect payments even though all work on the project has been suspended – and even as the company and four of its employees face federal fraud charges not related to the bypass work.

Louise Cotton Mill, now known around town as Hawthorne Mill, is one of several old textile factories that serve as a historic reminder of what became known as Charlotte’s first true industry in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. But the redevelopment of Hawthorne Mill differs from new multifamily development in that developers can’t just come in and put up projects as they wish. There are strict guidelines governing historic properties that don’t apply to new projects.Read More »
