MINT HILL — The Mint Hill Board of Commissioners voted to rezone 21 acres on Lawyers Road back to residential on March 14. The two 10-acre tracts are near the Sam’s Xpress car wash, which just recently opened.
The parcels were rezoned from residential to institutional in 2008 for the purpose of building a charter high school on the site. But Queen’s Grant ultimately built one of its campuses on Idlewild Road.
A representative of the property owners said the site will most likely be used for development of single-family homes. Approximately 32 single-family homes could be built on the site. Development plans for the property would have to be presented to the town for approval.
One resident expressed concern about apartments being built on the site but Mayor Ted Biggers said that won’t happen.
“We do not allow apartments in Mint Hill,” Biggers said. “They are not allowed.”
