Oct. 3. By Dave Vieser. A change in the expansion plans for Lake Norman Hyundai will get a final look at tonight’s Town Board Meeting.

The new plan

The request is to build one large building in the area that was approved for two smaller buildings.

“The proposed amendment will combine the previously approved two future buildings, which would have encompassed 35,500 square feet, into one future building totaling 44,482 square feet,” said Town Planner Gary Fournier. “The proposed development will consist of an automobile sales dealership.

Will the dealership move?

According to the applicant, they are simply moving the existing Hyundai business to the new building once it is completed. They will retain the old building for another one of their automobile brands.

What’s nearby?

The properties to the south along Chartown Drive consist of the Life Fellowship Church and the new Lake Norman Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram automobile sales dealership. The properties to the west consist of a vacant restaurant (Kobe Hero) and numerous small commercial warehouses in the Lake Norman Commerce Center Development.

Meeting details

The meeting will begin at 6 pm in Town Hall on Catawba Avenue. It will also be live streamed on the town web site:
