Board unanimously approves controversial North Creek Village project in Huntersville

After months of back and forth and mixed recommendations from Huntersville town leaders, the town board unanimously approved the controversial North Creek Village project Monday.

Planning board members were also concerned about the development’s buffer zones that would separate the project from the surrounding rural area. Magnolia Development not only agreed to provide 100-foot buffers between North Creek Village and Black Farms Road, but to leave the first 80 feet of vegetation undisturbed. They agreed to replant and vegetation in they touch in the remaining 20 feet.

The commissioners voted 6-0 to approve the project.
