Carolinas HealthCare System is asking the town of Davidson for permission to use a ground-mounted “tombstone” sign at its $36 million behavioral health hospital off NC 73 east of Davidson. The issue will come up at the Town Board Tuesday night, Jan. 14, where it’s scheduled for a public hearing and vote. The board also will hold a public hearing on the planned annexation of the hospital site and get an update on Mecklenburg County’s work to correct the flawed 2011 property revaluation.
The meeting begins Tuesday at 6pm at Town Hall, 216 S. Main St.
Also on the agenda will be a report from the town’s outside auditors on the 2012-13 financial results,
CHS SEEKS SIGN APPROVAL
CHS is building the new hospital at 16740 Davidson-Concord Road (N.C. 73), adding badly needed in-patient mental health beds and services in the Lake Norman area. The hospital is expected to open in the coming months.
The nonprofit organization wants to use a type of ground-mounted sign that’s not allowed, although there are precedents around town. (The town allowed MSC Industrial Supply Co. to use a similar sign at its Exit 30 area headquarters.) It’s also larger than what’s allowed. To win approval, CHS is seeking approval of conditional zoning for the site.
