At its Nov. 3 meeting, the Huntersville Board of Commissioners:
- Approved giving Shops at Crossroads Village a two-year extension on its plans to build a 120,000-square-foot shopping center on the southwest corner of N.C. Highway 73 and Beatties Ford Road. The sketch plan was approved in 2009 and, even with legislated extensions granted during the recession, was set to expire in January because the preliminary plan had not been approved and 5 percent of the construction cost had not been invested in the site.
- Approved a subdivision sketch plan for Centennial at Fred Brown, phase 6 of Bowman Development Group’s Centennial project that was approved in 2002. Phase 6 includes six single-family homes on 1.74 acres on Fred Brown Road. The Planning Board recommended approval Sept. 23.
- Approved a sketch plan for Vermillion Hill Street West Apartments, a Bowman Development Group project within the Vermillion subdivision that will include 12 units in four buildings on 0.43 acres. The Planning Board recommended approval Sept. 23.
- Set public hearings for Dec. 1 for LStar Management LLC’s request to rezone 1.0 acre on the east side of N.C. Highway 115 about 1,200 feet north of Hambright Road from conditional highway commercial to conditional residential transit oriented development to conform with their surrounding property, and for a request from Andrew McCoy of JW Homes LLC to amend sections of the zoning ordinance to allow prominent front porches to be used as the primary plane in reference to garage setbacks, as opposed to having the primary plane be defined by the frontmost wall of heated square footage.
