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. 

The owner's 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.
