Psychiatric hospital update: After months of debate, Huntersville commissioners denied a rezoning request for a proposed psychiatric hospital at N.C. 115 and Verhoeff Drive on March 5.
The proposed hospital would have offered inpatient and outpatient services and was projected to open in 2013.
Carolinas HealthCare must submit a significantly different site plan to be considered for another rezoning request at the same site.
Revaluation update: After growing concerns from residents in northern Mecklenburg about their now year-old tax values, the county is planning a three-week review into the way it assessed properties along Lake Norman.
Assessor Garrett Alexander announced last week that his office plans to temporarily delay consideration of some appeals in Cornelius and along Lake Norman until staff could review the way tax values were set in those areas.
Blood Drive: The Community Blood Center of the Carolinas will host blood drives in the Lake Norman area this week. Here are the dates:
8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday at Regal Theaters Birkdale 16, 16950 Birkdale Commons Parkway in Huntersville
5 to 8:30 p.m. on March 21 at Assurance United Methodist, 9700 Mt Holly Huntersville Road in Huntersville.
