The Davidson Planning Department will host a public workshop Wednesday night to begin discussing a new small area plan for the area off I-77 Exit 30, which town officials have dubbed “Circles at 30. The meeting is Wednesday, June 13, at 7 p.m., in the Town Hall Board Room, 216 S. Main St. It begins with a presentation, then breaks up into groups to review and discuss area maps.
“The purpose of the workshop is to solicit input around land-use and transportation issues in an effort to create a long-range vision for the area,” the town said in an announcement.
Staff and designers will also be at Town Hall all day Wednesday, June 13, and Thursday, June 14, to work on to work on plans and drawings.
The Exit 30 area has developed over the past 10 years with a variety of offices, the Homewood Suites, Davidson Day School, and the Davidson Commons shopping center, anchored by a Harris Teeter that opened in 2008. But some plans for the area date back a decade or more, and town officials say it’s time for an update.
Developers dropped some proposals for the area amid the economic downturn in recent years, including a planned Sheraton Hotel and conference center. Others have come to the town for approval of projects that never happened.
Meanwhile, the town board has approved changes in some plans. In April, commissioners approved changes to a conditional master plan for the Northeast Quadrant area, north of Jetton Street and east of the highway. The original conditional zoning was approved in 2004. The changes clarified that the maximum building height is 75 feet, removed a one-hotel limit in the area, and slightly reduced the size of permitted wall signs.
