WEDDINGTON, NC – The Town of Weddington Planning Board met via Zoom on Monday, November 23. A Temporary Use Permit was discussed for a Christmas performance to be held on a 13.24-acre lot at Christ South, located at 323 Reid Dairy Road, on December 12, 13, 19, and 20. Jeff Taylor, the applicant, stated that the main purpose of the event is to bring joy to the neighborhood. The vote for this event’s approval is planned to be taken at least 24 hours after the meeting. If approved, everyone who attends the performance is advised to wear a mask. The event will host Theatre Charlotte’s live production of A Christmas Carol, and the property would be used from 12:00 pm -7:00 pm for set-up, performance, and tear down.
The Board also approved the use of a Minor Subdivision (24.01 acres, zoned RCD) on 201 South Providence Road for the Mary M. Morris, Heirs Property.
Union County has an ordinance for every fire hydrant to be within 500 feet from a primary structure. However, in the case of some small subdivisions, hydrants are on the other side of the street from the development. When this happens, thoroughfares are shut down in order for the fire hydrant to be used. It was recommended that all major and minor housing developments are required to place a hydrant on the same side of the road as the development, no less than 500 feet from a principal structure. The Board voted unanimously in favor of this recommendation. A public hearing will be held in December. Council will review and approve in January.
Another public hearing will be held next month to renew a twenty-year annexation agreement between the town of Weddington and the Village at Marvin.
