The developer of one of Mooresville's largest subdivisions plans to build a community aimed at older adults that would include 51 detached cottages, 150 attached homes and a 100-unit assisted living center.
The 21-acre community would be within Charlotte-based Carolina Income Management Group's existing Morrison Plantation development near Lake Norman in south Iredell.
The assisted living center could also eventually include a 40-bed skilled care area, according to Mooresville Planning Department documents.
Carolina Income's new community would be on Lineberger Drive and Muskedine Loop and would be built in several phases that would depend on market conditions.
The developer was scheduled last week to seek a "conditional rezoning" of the property that would allow the company to proceed with the project. Carolina Income, however, asked the Mooresville Planning Board to delay considering the zoning change until its Dec. 9 meeting, because company officials still need to meet with Morrison Plantation's homeowners association about the project.
The Planning Board voted 5-0 to delay considering the proposed zoning until Dec. 9.
The proposal also includes a request to add 200 attached homes to Morrison Plantation, which now has 460 single-family homes and about 200 attached homes. The developer's site plan also proposes lake boat slips that would need state and federal approval.
The Mooresville Board of Commissioners will have final say on the zoning change and will schedule a public hearing before it votes.
Major Davidson development planned
DAVIDSON Childress Klein Properties Inc. wants to develop 74 acres owned by the local Mayes family near Davidson-Concord Road and N.C. 73 for a mixed-use community that could include stores, offices, homes and civic uses.
The town will hold a planning charrette Dec. 15 and 16 at the River Run Country Club clubhouse, 19125 River Falls Drive, for residents to learn more about the developer's application for the project.
The charrette will include a walk of the property on Dec.15 and a public presentation the night of Dec. 16. More specific charrette details will be sent in a letter in early December to residents within a half-mile of the site and to local media in the next few weeks, town officials said last week.
Issues such as regional transportation and building design will be discussed at the charrette, as will conceptual development options for the property, Davidson Planning Manager Lauren Blackburn said.
