CHARLOTTE, N.C. - City Council members discussed Monday on whether to re-zone a section of Sharon Lane that would pave the way for new townhomes.
A developer wants to build nearly two dozen new homes along Sharon Lane, between Providence Road and Heathmoor Lane. It would be within a mile of the Cotswold Shopping Center.
Many neighbors have protested the project, saying it would cause more congestion in the already traffic-heavy area.
The Council did not have enough votes Monday to approve or deny the project. They are expected to vote again on March 27.
Also on Monday’s agenda, council members said that food trucks can stay open later across Charlotte.
The measure allows trucks to stay open past 9 p.m. It also allows them to park near school and church properties.
