Huntersville Establishing Land Development Department June 1st

Beginning June 1st, the Town of Huntersville will operate a local development review and permitting agency, bringing in-house a variety of services now provided by Mecklenburg County.

The main services the Town will take over from LUESA include development plan review; zoning, development and erosion control inspections; and bond administration. Five new positions have been created to provide these services, and the Town expects to have them in place within the next two months. The positions include a Street Inspector, an Erosion Control Inspector, a Bond Administrator, a Stormwater Plan Review and a Zoning Inspector.

Last week, the Town Board adopted a new development fee schedule, which will add the fees now charged by LUESA to those charged by the Town.

Town board members have expressed their hope that bringing land development services in house would improve efficiency and reduce plan approval time for developers. REBIC is continuing to meet with staff and Commissioners to ensure the handover doesn’t negatively impact development services.
