The Cornelius Board of Commissioners has unanimously approved plans by the developer of the Bailey Springs subdivision to expand the Davidson community westward into Cornelius with the addition of 13 single-family homes.
The board on Monday unanimously approved Provident Land Services request to rezone 11 acres at Bailey Road and Bailey Springs Drive in Cornelius. That will allow the developer to complete its plans for the existing Bailey Springs community, which will have 150 single-family lots upon completion.
Provident Land Services President Tom Waters said the Davidson component, launched about nine years ago on 92 acres, has about 130 homes already built.
He said the homes in Cornelius would be priced in line with those in Davidson, at upwards of $400,000.
Provident Land Services requested a rezoning to rural preservation conditional, conservation subdivision, from rural preservation.
The new zoning allows for four dwellings per acre. The developer has proposed a density of 1.2 units per acre. More than 60 percent of the project will be open space, including a 1.6-acre park in the center of the property.
