The Village has scheduled two public involvement meetings for an application received by Essex Land Development for a ‘by-right’ subdivision to be named “Barcroft”. The property site is located at 8517 Bonds Grove Church Road (across from the BelleGrove subdivision) and the parcel identification number is 06-186-017.
Both PIMs will be held on Monday, September 12, 2016. The first will be from 2-4 p.m. and will take place on-site. Parking is available in the driveway on the property. Access to the property is available through the gate.
The second PIM will take place from 5-7 p.m. at Village Hall (10004 New Town Road).
The purpose of the PIM is to provide information and solicit public input regarding the proposed plans for the subdivision. The meeting is designed to allow citizens to view the general design and layout and to ask questions of the applicant and the service providers. The application is for approximately 27 homes on approximately 41 acres. The meetings are designed to allow citizens to view existing conditions, general design, and layout concepts, and to answer questions from service providers and the community. The project site plan for the proposed development will be available on the Village’s website prior to the PIM.
There is a possibility that a quorum of the following Boards may be present for this PIM: Village Council, Planning Board, Parks, Recreation and Greenways Advisory Board and Design Review Board. No action will be taken on the part of these boards.

The Village Council has proclaimed the week September 17-23 as Constitution Week. This year marks the 60th anniversary of Constitution Week in the US. The first resolution to observe Constitution Week was made June 14, 1955, by Senator William F. Knowland of California. Following passage of the resolution by both Houses of Congress, President Eisenhower issued his proclamation on August 19, 1955.
The first observance of Constitution Week was so successful that on January 5, 1956, Senator Knowland introduced a Senate Joint Resolution to have the President designate September 17-23 annually as Constitution Week. The resolution was adopted on July 23 and signed into Public law 915 on August 2, 1956.

The Mayor and the Clerk have been hauled away in a police car and locked up! Locked up for a good cause that is!
Joe and Melody are participating in the South Charlotte Lock-Up for MDA. They were hauled away this morning (8/25) and are serving time while trying to raise funds to free individuals — and the families who love them — from the harmful effects of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related life-threatening diseases so they can live longer and grow stronger.
Visit the MDA Lock-up page and search for their names if you would like to contribute.
