Building Moratorium for Weddington

 

WEDDINGTON, N.C 01/15/2008. -- Town Council members agreed Monday night to a residential building moratorium of up to 18 months as Weddington and nearby municipalities in Union County create a transportation plan and work to relieve congestion.

 

Several residents and developers voiced their opposition, arguing that the moratorium isn't necessary and doesn't allow for property tax relief. But Weddington leaders said the time was right for smart growth.

 

New home construction could be put off for as many as 18 months under a building moratorium in Weddington. The mayor said that this is a chance to step back and figure out where are roads are going to connect from and what they're going to connect to.

Weddington leaders said the time was right for smart growth. New schools, public utilities and libraries will be exempt from the moratorium.

 

The North Carolina Department of Transportation estimates Highway 16, or Providence Road, to and from Weddington will have three times more traffic by 2030
