Mint Hill Commissioners consider town noise ordinance revisions

By Leah Schmalz

Police Chief Tim Ledford presented a revised noise ordinance at the town council meeting last Thursday. The ordinance mirrors the one used by the town of Matthews. It would set the residential decibel limit for amplified sound in the evening to 55 decibels as measured at the property line. For commercial properties the level would be 60 dB.

“What we looked at is a quantitative number that we could use for the maximum level,” Ledford said. The staff tested these noise levels at residential and commercial properties. “You’re protecting the integrity of your next door neighbor but the person creating the sound can certainly have the volume where any person could reasonably enjoy it,” he said.  […]

Miracle League raises funds to build wheelchair accessible softball fields, playground

By Andrew Stark

The Miracle League of Indian Trail got its fundraising start at Emerald Lake Golf Club on June 6, just shy of a year after the organization got up and running. Now, with more than 100 attendees at the organization’s first fundraiser, the organization is hoping to take its next step.

“This is really the first event we’ve had,” communication specialist Samantha Towns said. “But we’re very happy with how it turned out and with how it’s going. This also marks the one-year anniversary of when we petitioned the Indian Trail Board of Commissioners, so we’ve made a lot of progress in a short time.”

The golf tournament teed off at 1 pm, but wasn’t completed until far later than that.

After their round of golf was completed, guests were treated to a cookout and the festivities—which included a raffle for a 60-inch television and a silent auction featuring a number of prizes including an autographed Phil Mickelson picture—were designed to raise money for the Miracle League and the adult wheelchair softball league’s biggest goal.

The town of Indian Trail recently completed work on Crooked Creek Park, a multi-functional ball field, concession stand and playground. […]

Sidewalks, rectangles next on Mint Hill’s list

By Andrew Stark

The Town of Mint Hill seems to always be working on the next big project, and to Town Manager Brian Welch, those are well defined and clearly laid out in terms of sidewalks and rectangles.

Welch said the first priority has been continuing the ongoing sidewalk construction operation, which he sees as the Board of Commissioner’s No. 1 priority.

“At this point in time I don’t view it as this or that sidewalk project, I view it as these guys are making a commitment to build them and we’re going to hammer it out,” Welch said. “I didn’t take a measurement of how much sidewalk we had in this town before they told me to build more, but we’ve built a lot of sidewalks in the past couple of years and I’ve got a feeling this board will continue with that.” […]
