The massive Village at Lake Norman development planned for Cornelius received the necessary rezoning for the proposed location south of Westmoreland Rd between I-77 and US 21, but major hurdles still remain for the project. In a 3-2 vote Wednesday night (April 23rd), Town of Cornelius commissioners approved the rezoning for the land, but many other approvals will be needed along the way to completion. Complex financing plans for the project will need to be accepted by Mecklenburg County, and the Town of Cornelius has reserved the right to rescind the rezoning if all the financing issues are not to the Town's liking. Major road construction is proposed and needed by the developers, especially the addition of an interchange with Westmoreland Rd on I-77 and the addition of at least one mo...

For the second straight day, Cornelius commissioners delayed voting on the rezoning of land that would allow the go ahead for the proposed Village at Lake Norman development. Commissioners originally extended the Monday meeting in order to discuss the situation further. Commissioner Jim Bensman was unable to attend Tuesday's meeting in person but did participate via phone. The decision was made to delay the final vote until today, Wednesday the 23rd, in order for Bensman to be there in person for the vote. Commissioners are trying to decide if the massive 104 acre development will positively impact the town and its future. Developers Cornelius-Bromont have proposed numerous road improvements as part of the development, but have stated that the Commissioners accepting the establishment ...

The Crucial Step of Setting the Right PriceLake Norman, Mooresville, Huntersville, Denver, Davidson PropertyThe biggest error made by sellers in any market but especially in a growing market like we have in the Charlotte and Lake Norma area is expecting too high a price. With a price that is unrealistically high, a house will stay on the market for a lengthy period and that is deadly. This can be particularly problematic if you have selected your next home, with the pressure to obtain the resources to make the commitment on your new home.Price for Value To be successful, the thing to keep in mind as a starting point is that to be successful you have to be the very best buy in the area. If you are working with a Realtor, he or she will be able to provide you with an analysis and tell yo...

Buying a Lake Norman Lake home or lot Buying A Lake Lot or Home Before buying a lake lot or homes, you must check into the realities of living on the lake and the requirements that must be met for piers and docks. To accommodate a larger boat or a boat with a deep draw, you may need to dredge your shoreline for a deeper anchorage With your plans in place, you are ready to call the dredging company to get started. But first, you must pay a $2,000 application fee (required by Duke Power, which administers the shoreline along Lake Norman) which is valid for 18 months. If the project is approved by Duke Power, $1,000 of that fee will be refunded. In light of that expense, you may want to ask your neighbors in the cove to share the cost of dredging if it is needed on their site. It probably...

T Lake Norman History History of Lake Norman The Great River was named after the people who lived by it, the Catawba Indians, known in their own language as the Kawahcatawbas, "the people of the river."  As the settlers began moving into the fertile lands along the Catawba, they brought with them diseases from Europe that the Catawbas had no resistance to, and in less than 175 years, their population dwindled from over 5,000 to less than 400.   These settlers built their cabins and farmed the land beside the Catawba River, but before long they were drawn into battle against the British Crown.  In 1781, General Cornwallis proclaimed Charlotte to be "a damned hornet's nest of rebellion."  At the battle site at Cowan's Ford, General William Lee Davidson, along with a band of Catawba Valley...
