In a consent action Monday night, the Charlotte City Council set a public hearing date of Sept. 22 for the proposed voluntary annexation of the 66.6-acre Trevi Village area, in the 12300 block of North Tryon Street in northeast Mecklenburg County, and the 19-acre Woodfield Northlake Centre site in the 10200 block of Northlake Centre Parkway.
Both properties are vacant but expected to be developed; are within the city’s planning and zoning jurisdictions; and are bordered by city limits.
Before the council voted to approve the consent agenda, Councilwoman Claire Fallon reminded the council, as she often does in annexation situations, that the Charlotte Fire Department should be expanded to better cover new areas of town. The staff report on the annexations backs her up, saying that firefighting forces are inadequate in both areas.
Other consent agenda items included:
- Awarding a 12-month, $1.4 million low-bid contract to Queen City-based OnSite Development LLC for stormwater maintenance services for the current fiscal year.
- Awarding a $1.2 million low-bid contract to Carolina Cajun Concrete Inc. of Matthews for a sidewalk, curb, gutter and stormwater mitigation project in the Hope Valley and Oak Forest neighborhoods.
- Authorizing the spending of $2.3 million to purchase 62.64 acres and other real property near Charlotte Douglas International Airport that was condemned under the city’s master plan for the airport.
