In zoning and land-use business considered at its Feb. 3, the Huntersville Board of Commissioners:
- Heard a proposal from developer Laureldale LLC of Charlotte to add 14 lots on 5.4 acres in Mecklenburg County to the existing 511-lot Skybrook North residential subdivision just over the line in Cabarrus County. David Peete, principal planner for the town, said the staff endorsed the developer’s request, which would add a second entrance to Skybrook from Poplar Tent Road, because it was in keeping with Huntersville’s long-range plans for the area.
- Held a public hearing on a request by Greater Cleveland-based DDRM Rosedale LLC to add 778 square feet to the 45,000-square-foot Harris Teeter grocery store in the Rosedale Shopping Center on Gilead Road to accommodate two new freezers. Senior planner Brad Priest said the planning staff approved the change.
- Heard a proposal by Planning Director Jack Simoneau to slightly change the order in which the appointed Huntersville Planning Board and elected commissioners consider land-use petitions. The new plan, which Simoneau said would “shave two to three weeks off the conditional rezoning process,” would remove a requirement that the Board of Commissioners and planning board conduct joint public hearings on petitions.
