The Charlotte City Council approved the following petitions at its May 20 meeting.

2018-146 - Single family development on the east side of Shopton Road West just north of Sledge Road. Plans call for 48 units oriented towards baby boomers on 18.39 acres (2.61 units per acre). This is less than the 3 units per acre allowed by current zoning. The MX-1 zoning would allow innovative features, such as smaller lot size, on-street parking, and alleys. The plans include significant tree save areas. Parcel # 19911106.

Developers also plan to build single family housing on Parcel # 19911103 to the north, which does not require rezoning.
