HUNTERSVILLE – Huntersville residents have two more opportunities to ask questions and offer their opinions on the town’s draft of its 2030 Community Plan, which will guide development during the next 20 years.
The final “public-input forum” takes place Thursday, April 14, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Huntersville Town Hall, 101 Huntersville-Concord Road. Residents can give their opinions on any part of the plan, which addresses housing, the environment, transportation, economic/commercial development, downtown and public facilities.
On Monday, April 18, at 6:30 p.m., planning department staff will report to the Huntersville Board of Commissioners on all comments received at the public forums. Monday’s meeting also is the last official opportunity for residents to offer their opinions before the planning staff begins final revisions to the plan.
A draft of the entire plan is available for review on the Town’s website at: www.huntersville.org/planning_communityplan.asp. Feedback may also be offered online through a link on the Community Plan website.
Staff will present the revised 2030 Community Plan to the Huntersville Planning Board on April 26, which is expected to make a formal recommendation to the town board. On May 2, the town board will consider adoption of the 2030 plan.
More than 800 residents already have weighed in on the plan though surveys mailed to a random sample of residents and placed on the town’s website. Results of those surveys are available online at www.huntersville.org/planning_communityplansupportdata.asp#survey.
Residents can read a hard copy of the Draft 2030 Community Plan at Huntersville Town Hall; the Town Center building, in the third-floor Planning Department office; and at the North County Regional Library, which is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
