Residents of Lincoln County will have the opportunity to voice their opinions regarding a planned development in Denver at an upcoming community involvement meeting.
Southeastern Land Development, LLC, submitted an application to the county in April, requesting re-zoning in order to develop 221 single-family detached lots and up to 200 multi-family units, as well as 100,000 square feet of general retail space.
Though no start date is listed at this time, the projected completion date is 2020.
The property at North Carolina Business 16 and Triangle Circle is currently vacant and is owned by Rivercross Investments, a company listed as being based out of Lincolnton. Concurrent with the application for re-zoning, a study was conducted to analyze traffic patterns and projected improvements to the current roads that would need to fall in line with the project. The only way in or out of what will be known as the Rivercross Subdivision will be through the commercial section of the project off of Highway 16 and also off of Triangle Circle.
According to a survey conducted by SRS Engineering, planned roadway improvements include the realignment of Highway 16 Business and Hagers Ferry Road, the inclusion of more traffic and signal lights and turning lanes put on both northbound Highway 16 Business and westbound Hagers Ferry.
The community involvement meeting will be held on Aug. 6 at 6:30 p.m. at Unity Presbyterian Church at 8210 Unity Church Road in Denver. More information regarding the proposal will be available and comments will be received prior to the public hearing.
For more information, contact the Lincoln County Planning and Inspections Department at (704) 736-8440.
