Last Thursday evening the Town of Huntersville planning staff held a meeting for the purpose of obtaining public comments prior to the adoption of the Upper Ramah Creek Basin Small Area Plan. During the briefing, staff provided an overview of current and future happenings in the study area including:
North Ramah Creek sewer extension from existing location to NC-73 will begin in the spring of 2014 and should be completed by the spring of 2016.
Description of location of future transit station (Red Line) NC-115 and NC-73.
Summary of the NC-73 Land Use Corridor Plan (I-85 to Lincoln County).
Staff also briefed the group on some of the comments they had already received from community residents regarding the study area. According to staff, most felt that:
Any land east of the Willowbrook subdivision should continue to be low intensity development.
Any land west of the Willowbrook subdivision should be higher intensity commercial and residential development.
Any land near the future transit station should be light industrial or transit oriented development.
The next meeting will be held on March 13th at 6:00 p.m. at Huntersville Town Hall. At that meeting, staff will give an updated summary of comments received. Another opportunity to provide additional input will also be provided. Staff hopes to present a final plan presentation to the Town Board at its regularly scheduled meeting on July 21st at 6:30 pm. If you have any questions or concerns about this matter, please do not hesitate to contact Rob Nanfelt with REBIC.
