Mallard Creek

Zoning change: The Charlotte City Council has approved a zoning change for about a half-acre at Prosperity Church Road and Arbor Creek Drive.

Cambridge-Eastfield LLC requested the change at the mixed-use Eastfield Village development in order to relocate a planned driveway onto Arbor Creek Drive.

The city rezoned 58 acres at the site in 2002 to allow construction of townhomes, singe-family residences and retail.
