Steele Creek Area Plan Meeting January 26

Steele Creek Plan(January 14, 2012) A meeting is scheduled for Thursday, January 26 at 6:00 p.m. in Room 280 of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center (600 East Fourth Street) to discuss proposed changes to the Steele Creek Area Plan with the Citizens Advisory Group and other interested persons. (Parking is available in the parking deck located on Davidson Street between Third and Fourth streets. Please bring your parking ticket to the meeting for validation.)

The plan has been going through the review and adoption process since June 2009.  As a part of the process, citizens are given the opportunity to comment on the draft plan recommendations. During this process, some citizens expressed concern to Planning staff and City Council about the land use recommendations for The Sanctuary area and a pending rezoning (Petition No. 2011-065). As a result, Planning staff met with this group to get a better understanding of their concerns. 

The group shared that their concerns extend beyond The Sanctuary development and include parcels that are closest to lake Wylie. In summary, their concern is about the environmental impact of higher density on the lake. As a result of this meeting, another revision to the draft plan is being proposed. This revision is change the recommended land use from residential up to four dwelling units per acre to one dwelling unit per acre for numerous parcels that are closest to the lake. This change will not impact the existing zoning of property. Neither will the plan recommend a zoning change. In addition, the recommended density for parcels that are approved for development or developed with a higher density will not change. 

If you have any questions, please contact Melony McCullough  of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Planning Department at 704-336-2205 or by email to mmccullough@ci.charlotte.nc.us or visit the Steele Creek Area Plan web page.
