Huntersville project with commercial, residential development has first public hearing

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. — A major project proposed in Huntersville went before the public for an initial hearing Monday night. The hearing is the first in what could be a series of critical meetings for the project’s fate in the coming weeks.

Huntersville’s board of commissioners are holding the public hearing for a rezoning request from Davidson-based Treenail Development. It is seeking to rezone an approximately 70-acre site off Hambright Road to allow for the development of a mixed-use project called Town 1. The project calls for a range of residential and commercial uses.

It is the first of three critical public steps for the rezoning request. After tonight’s hearing, town documents show the request is tentatively scheduled to go before the town’s planning board later this month. The planning board makes recommendations on zoning matters to the board of commissioners, which has final authority. If the current timeline holds, the request could return to the town board on June 20 for a decision, documents state.
