CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
Homeowners lost their fight to keep hundreds of new homes from being built in Lake Wylie.
A group called Save Our Coves rallied outside the Government Center before Monday night’s City Council meeting.
In March, a Charlotte-based developer, Crescent Resources, requested permission to build more than 500 single-family homes near Shopton Road.
Neighbors said the plan goes against the city’s plan to protect the lake.
“This is the last corner of Mecklenburg County that isn’t heavily developed. The city has the opportunity to leave it that way,” said homeowner Nancy Nibert.
More than 100 residents attended the meeting in protest.
Neighbors said the development would lead to overcrowded roads and schools and have a devastating impact on the lake.
