WEDDINGTON, NC – The Board supported the proposal of the “Home of Weddington High School 25 NCHSAA State Championships” slogan signs to be placed on either NC 16 and NC 84 or inside the municipal limits of Weddington. As a result, Weddington will take on the responsibility of administration, design, fabrication, inspection, and maintenance of the signs.
Recognizing that a large majority of citizens in the surrounding area of the Village of Wesley Chapel are not in favor of high-density development, the Board opposed the addition of a subdivision. The proposed R-4 CZ high-density Epcon Senior Housing subdivision would have gone against the community’s wishes to preserve the current standard of living and their wish to not become urbanized. Also, given the high volume of traffic on Waxhaw-Indian Trail Road and Bill Howey Road, this would negatively impact the existing residents in the area.
Staff also began seeking feedback on several factors in relation to possible changes in the Solid Waste and Recycling Services. These include the types of services (bulk items, backdoor services, collecting construction debris and shredding), level of service (weekly, biweekly or monthly), carts (color, quantity, and type), day and time of collection, and legal issues (definition of failure to perform tasks, penalties for missed collections, private road damage, insurance limits and background checks of employees of the chosen vendor). The town has six months after January 11, 2021, to take formal action on this issue.
