Sidewalk, parking closed in front of downtown building with collapsed roof

Sidewalk closed in front of the old Smith Building downtown

June 8. The sidewalk and on-street parking at 21320 Catawba Ave. will be closed indefinitely for the safety of pedestrians and motorists because of a roof collapse and potential structural issues of the vacant building, the town announced.
The Lake Norman Social District remains open except for in front of 21320 Catawba.
When the safety issues are resolved, the area will fully re-open.
