Community Meeting on
Lidl Grocery Rezoning is July 6
(June 26, 2017)
Representatives of the petitioners for
Rezoning Petition 2017-023 have scheduled a community meeting
for Thursday, July 6 at 6:00 PM at Steele Creek Presbyterian Church
(7407 Steele Creek Road). (See Notice.)
(including five separate parcels) is located east and south of the BP gas station and
Bojangles restaurant on Steele Creek Road across from the Berewick
Town Center. (See map below.) The petition requests a change from R-3
(residential with up to 3 units per acre) to MUDD-O (mixed use
development district - optional provisions).
The site plan calls for up to 85,000 square feet retail (including a
Lidl grocery store), up to 105 hotel units, and up to 250
residential units. Lidl is a German grocery chain that is described
as "upscale discount." (See
Here's what Charlotte's newest grocery store chain will look like
- Charlotte Observer, June 15, 2017.) The Lidl store would be
adjacent to the Bojangles on Steele Creek Road.
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Planning Department has been
working on a development study for the area generally bounded by
I-485, western property lines for Williams Glenn subdivision and the schools,
Brown-Grier Road, and Steele Creek Road. In addition to
Petition 2017-023, there are two outstanding rezoning petitions in
the study area:
Rezoning Petition 2016-120 and
Rezoning Petition 2017-065. Community meetings on those
petitions will be scheduled at a later date.
Wrap-Up Presentation for the Steele Creek Development Study Released.
A final report on the study is expected within the next few weeks.
Steele Creek Area Plan, adopted in February 2012, calls for
residential development with up to 6 dwelling units per acre, but
consideration will be given to a mixture of residential, office, and
retail land uses, with retail being limited to a convenience size
center (70,000 square feet maximum).
The rezoning and resulting development in the study area should meet
- The wants and needs of the petitioners and property owners,
- The objectives of the Steele Creek Area Plan and Steele Creek Development Study, and
- The wants and needs of the community.
This community meeting is the next opportunity for area
residents to provide feedback to the developers, city staff,
and elected officials on what the community desires in this
area. You are encouraged to take advantage of this
opportunity to have your voice heard.
Representatives of the petitioners have scheduled a community
meeting as follows:
