Reserve at Smith Circle proposed for 3.9 acre property

July 7. By Dave Vieser. The Cornelius Town Board heard from residents last night who were concerned about another infill proposal that would take down a stately home on Smith Circle.

Steve Terpak is proposing 12 single-family homes on 3.9 acres at 19438 Smith Circle not far from Cornelius Elementary School. Terpak conducted a required community meeting via Zoom earlier Tuesday.

Terpak said the proposed two-story single family homes, ranging from 2,500 to 3,500 square feet, would sell in the mid-400s.

Kathleen Blackwell-Plank, a neighbor on nearby Floral Lane, expressed concerns, saying that Smith Circle carries too much traffic on school days.

There was no decision at the Town Board meeting; the next step will be a hearing before the Cornelius Planning Board. No date has not been set.

In other action, the commissioners:

—Reappointed Hardy McConnell to seat No. 7 on the Planning Board, while also appointing Phil Bechtold to Seat No. 6, Sean Herndon to Seat No. 8, George Searle to Seat No. 9 and Jaime Rauscher to Seat No. 10.
