Letter: Cornelius Business Park speaks out after Town Board vote

July 18. OPINION. We are both surprised and disappointed by the Cornelius Town Board’s decision tonight to deny Greenberg Gibbons the opportunity to present new information about the proposed Cornelius Business Park. The company has worked with Town staff for years to create a project that best served the Cornelius community. Upon request of the Mayor and Town staff, we had asked tonight for more time to present Commissioners with information they requested to make the most informed decision possible.

The Class A Flex office facility, proposed for land on Bailey Road designated as Business Campus, is in full compliance with the Town of Cornelius Land Use Plan unanimously approved by both the Town Planning Board and the Town Board just two short months ago.

After endorsement by the Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce and multiple information sessions hosted by Greenberg Gibbons, it is unfortunate that a few vocal residents can prevent further exploration of a project that will bring increased tax revenue to the Town and create 200-300 jobs in the community.

As a result of tonight’s vote, we have decided to withdraw our application to rezone the property.
