MINT HILL, NC – The Mint Hill Board of Commissioners held their monthly meeting recently at the Town Hall to discuss various business items on the agenda that will have an impact on the community.

During the meeting, the consent agenda was approved by all Board members. This includes the August tax collectors report, accepted on the hearing date of October 14, 2021, for property located at 14250 Cabarrus Road, 11026 Tyler Brook Lane, and 11032 Tyler Brook Lane, to be considered for annexation by the Town of Mint Hill, approval of no parking zone for a portion of Chesthill Drive, and accepting the July treasurer’s reports and financials.

The Mayor made a remembrance proclamation that 9/11 be a National Day of Service in the Town of Mint Hill this year and going forward.

The most interesting item on the agenda was docket item #ZC21-12 filed by the Harris Development Group for property located at 6902 Matthews-Mint Hill Road behind Showmars in the Mint Hill Festival Shopping Center. Planet Fitness plans to build an 18,000-square foot fitness center facility at this location, and they are asking for approval from the Planning Board and Board of Commissioners to move forward on the proposed project. It will be a 24/7 operation, and there appears to be sufficient parking space available to accommodate the building and existing businesses located in the shopping area.

The proposed office and storage complex located on the property at 11118 Business Lane was approved, and the developer Square A Land Holdings proposal is to maintain the original 100-foot buffer zone instead of the 50-foot buffer zone originally approved for the development of this property.

The City of Charlotte Elevated Water Tank project proposal has been deferred until October 14, 2021. This is the property located at 12901 Palomino Drive as previously reported.

Planning Director John Hoard made a favorable recommendation from the Town Planning Board for the Board of Commissioners to approve docket item #ZC21-10 filed by the Town of Mint Hill, to amend section 6.1.A (B) of the Unified Development Ordinance. The BOC approved based on the Town Planners’ recommendation.
