Lincolnton City Council members will discuss several applications for conditional use permits at their meeting on Thursday.

BTR Communities Group, LLC is requesting the conditional use rezoning of 9.77 acres of land from Planned Business to Conditional Use Residential Multi-Family. The applicant wishes to construct a 56 unit residential multi-family development on the west side of North Generals Boulevard, approximately 1,000 feet north of the intersection of North Generals Boulevard and Tait Mill Road.

Applicant Radwan Yousef is requesting an amendment to Section 153.113 of the Lincolnton Unified Development Ordinance to allow Hookah Cafes as a permitted use in the Central Business District. According to the city council’s prepared agenda, a prospective property for the hookah café has not been identified.

The Lincolnton Business Center is requesting a conditional use permit to operate a distillery in the General Manufacturing and Commercial District. The subject property is located 315 Motz Avenue.

Downtown Development Association Board Chair Brooke Sherrill is asking council members to consider a contract between the city and Downtown Development Association Alive After Five concert series.

City Manager Jeff Emory is expected to give an update on proposals received for the Biochemical Oxygen Demand Study for the Waste Water Treatment Plant. The Times-News previously reported that the original company’s estimated costs for the project would be approximately $18,300. Public Service Director Steve Peeler said that implementing a long-term plan at the plant to increase the city’s BOD was not immediately necessary, but it could be a benefit for the city by putting Lincolnton in a better position to recruit industry.

The city council meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at Lincolnton’s City Hall on Thursday, Mar. 6, and it is open to the public.
