Community Meeting for Office Park Rezoning on York Road is on February 13

Rezoning(February 6, 2013) River Rock Properties has submitted a rezoning petition for a 2.63 acre parcel located on the south side of York Road between Grand Palisades Parkway and Langston Drive. (See Rezoning Petition 2013-004.) The purpose of the rezoning is to consolidate two parcels under one conditional zoning district to accommodate up to 25,000 square feet of office uses permitted in the O-1 district.

Walter Fields, consultant representing River Rock Properties, has scheduled a community meeting for Wednesday, February 13 at 5:30 PM in the Community Room of the Steele Creek Library at 13620 Steele Creek Rd.

Mr. Fields sent out the following invitation:

Dear Neighbors:

We invite you to attend a neighborhood meeting to receive a presentation on a rezoning petition for approximately 2.6 acres located on the [southeast] corner of York Road (NC 49) and Grand Palisades Parkway. This site is next to the larger site that was zoned for retail and office use a number of years ago as part of the Palisades Town Center but which has yet to be developed. The purpose of this request is to allow for a small addition to the previously approved Palisades Town Center that would also be utilized office type uses. For more information on this petition, please go to the link below:

Sometimes with rezoning petitions, information is not readily available to interested parties and the facts about the request are misunderstood. We would like to take this opportunity to discuss information with you so that you may have the facts about the request. You may not have an interest in this particular rezoning, but if you do, we invite you to attend this meeting to learn more about the proposal, share your comments, and have an opportunity to ask questions.

The meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 13th at 5:30 PM in the Community Room of the Steele Creek Library at 13620 Steele Creek Rd. The meeting time is based on the library hours and will be concluded by 6:45.

If you have any questions about the meeting, please feel free to call Walter Fields at 704-372-7855

The Charlotte City Council is scheduled to hold a public hearing on this petition at its rezoning meeting on March 18. The City Council likely will vote on this petition at its April rezoning meeting.
