The Mooresville Board of Commissioners will consider a conditional use permit to allow for two eight-story buildings on Alcove Road.

The buildings, one a hotel and the other a planned residential complex, will be the subject of a public hearing at the board meeting Monday at 6 p.m. The meeting will be in town hall, 413 N. Main St.

Rick Howard of the Langtree Group is requesting the conditional use permit to allow the building of the two eight-story structures. The request deals with increasing the size of the buildings from the currently allowed five stories to eight.

There will also be a public hearing to amend the existing conditions of the conditional zoning.

The buildings are planned for an eight-acre site on Alcove Road at Langtree Shore Drive.

Infrastructure improvements, including additional turn lanes at Langtree Shore Drive, Wade’s Way and Langtree Road at Mecklynn Road, are a part of the proposed project. The town’s Technical Review Committee has reviewed and approved the site plan.

A number of other public hearings, dealing with annexation requests and zoning, are also on Monday’s agenda.

A public hearing to finalize voluntary annexation petitions for a number of parcels will be held. The parcels, on Joshua Lane, Ervin Road, Charlotte Highway, River Highway, Coddle Creek Highway, Brawley School Road, Hillcrest Drive, Oakridge Farm Highway, Faith Road and Shearers Road, will become part of the town’s corporate limits Dec. 30.

A request from Sequoia Forest LLC to rezone properties on Charlotte Highway from R2 and R5 to entirely R3 will be discussed in a public hearing. The plan is to combine the parcels for single family development.

U.S. Congressman Ted Budd will administer the oaths of office to Mayor Miles Atkins and board members Bobby Compton, Thurman Houston and Eddie Dingler as well as present a Congressional Award.

The board will also elect a mayor pro tem for the next year.

A number of items are also on the board’s consent agenda. Unless an item is pulled for further discussion, the consent agenda will be approved in one vote.

The items for consideration on the consent agenda include:

A request from Mooresville Parks and Recreation to accept a proposal from DA Clark Sculptures LLC for $75,000 to install a sculpture entitled “The Family Business” at Liberty Park. This installation was selected from finalists via a call to artists and was voted on at the board retreat in November. This is a budgeted item for the Liberty Park renovations.

A request from the Parks and Recreation Department to approve newly established fees for reserving the multi-purpose space at the Selma Burke Recreation Center.

A request from the Mooresville Police Department to sell surplus RAD Systems Equipment to Friends of radKIDS of Lake Norman for $145.

The Board of Commissioners has been invited to attend the informational meeting regarding the design of the proposed Moore Street Pedestrian Improvement Project for Moore Avenue from Academy Street to Church Street.

This is a walk-in event from 2-3 p.m. in the Lowrance Room of the Charles Mack Citizen Center, 215 N. Main St. The meeting is intended to give the public to convey interest and information to town staff members and the design consultants for the corridor.
