FROM STAFF REPORTS
Despite opposition from more than a dozen residents, Mooresville town commissioners on Monday approved a conditional rezoning request that will allow 339 residential units to be built off Rinehardt Road.
Rinehardt Village will feature 114 townhomes, 113 single-family homes and 112 active-adult homes on 114.1 acres. Amenities include walking trails, playgrounds and nearly 40 acres of open space.
During Monday’s public hearing, residents expressed their concerns over traffic along Rinehardt Road, concerns over toxic waste they said was dumped in the neighborhood, and the developer’s track record in another community.
The parcel, which is currently outside town limits, falls in the Town of Mooresville’s extra-territorial jurisdiction. The developer, MT Land, will request that the property be annexed into the town limits and that the town provide water and sewer service.
As part of the rezoning request, MT Land agreed to spend $2.5 million on road improvements and complete other traffic mitigation measures.
It was the developer’s third attempt to have the property rezoned. A request in January was denied because it included plans for commercial development on adjacent property.
Town staff and the town planning board both supported the conditional rezoning request.
Construction could begin in 20 to 24 months. Prices will range from the low $200,000s for townhomes.
