On Thursday, a small number of residents in South Iredell just across the county line and just north of Main Street in Davidson received notice of of a public hearing for the Mooresville Planning Board May 11th meeting.
The letter shown below is for the properties outlined in the following picture.
The three properties in question total just under 140 acres. Also, to be clear, the letter says the rezoning request is coming from Hinckley Gauvain. This entity is not the owner of the land. It is a real estate development outfit. Here is a link to their website.
aShortChronicle contacted the Mooresville Planning Department to see if we could find out more details. A return call from Mooresville public information officer, Kim Sellers, did not provide much in the way of additional detail however. Sellers said that this request is just for a rezoning and there is no detail available about any subsequent plans. However, one can be sure that a real estate development company does not go around trying to rezone property it has not purchased unless it has something in mind. A public records request would likely turn up more information.
Per the Mooresville Planning Ordinance
the requested zoning designations of Neighborhood Mixed Use and Corridor Mixed Use allow the development like the following:

140 acres is a huge piece of land. With this zoning, think "Birkdale" on Lake Davidson.
