This week’s zoning meeting is set to be a quick one for Charlotte City Council, with few items set for hearings or decisions.
The new, post-election City Council is set to take office next month, and the December zoning meeting is set to be heavy. The December 14 zoning meeting is set to start at 4 p.m. and end at 10 p.m. Any leftover items would be taken up at a meeting three days later, on Thursday, December 17.
So what’s up for a hearing or decision at Monday’s meeting? Not a whole lot, and many of the few projects on the agenda are requesting deferrals to later meetings. Here are two that are set for decisions.

▪ More new housing in South End: Ryan Homes is planning a transit-oriented development on a 1.7-acre site at the southeast corner of West Summit Avenue and South Church Street. There aren’t many details on the proposal, since it is a conventional rezoning (meaning a site plan isn’t required), but the transit-oriented zoning Ryan Homes wants requires a minimum density of 20 residential units per acre and allows office and retail uses. The site is currently zoned for industrial uses.
▪ Reuse of the former Charlotte Fire Department investigation building: The former fire station at 1215 South Blvd. is set to be turned into an office or retail use. Lat Purser & Associates bought the site from the city of Charlotte, and SLT Commercial Properties is carrying out the rezoning request.
