City Council Approves Rezoning for Proposed Country Inn
(November 6, 2002) At
its October 28 meeting, the Charlotte City Council approved a
rezoning petition that will allow the conversion of a house on
Youngblood Road built in 1902 by the Caruthers family to a
country inn or bed and breakfast.
original plan for the property included the construction of a
separate building for receptions with up to 220 attendees. Many
nearby residents as well as the Planning Commission objected to the
reception building because it would change the character of the
property and potentially allow activities that would adversely
affect the surrounding neighborhood.
The City Council
approved rezoning from R-3 to B-2(CD) after the plan was modified to
eliminate the reception building, increase parking, eliminate any
permanent structures in the future right-of-way for Shopton Road
Extension, maintain a wooded buffer, and reduce maximum attendance
to 125 people.
