The following water/sewer extension requests
were pulled from the consent agenda for further discussion. Under the town’s agreement with Charlotte Water, the town approves any water and sewer extension (extension of water and sewer lines to serve a property that is not a connection to existing lines adjacent to a property) to service a property. Two requests for water/sewer extensions were discussed by the board of commissioners; the former Hoke Lumber site and Kistler Farms.
The developer of the former Hoke Lumber site requests that water and sewer extensions be granted to allow for construction of +/-81 townhomes. The parcels include a former light industrial site and single-family homes.
The developer for Kistler Farm requests that water and sewer extensions be granted to these parcels for the development of 15 single-family homes. The parcels included are predominately wooded.
The board denied the two requests citing lack of information.OLD BUSINESSItems for old business typically have been previously presented and are for discussion and possible action. Public Facilities Project Phase I and II Conceptual Design and Pricing
