Residents of University Park and nearby neighborhoods began making announcements at the Forum in January about a proposed motel on the I-85 North service road near their neighborhood. On Monday, they took their opposition to a rezoning petition to a public hearing before Charlotte City Council.
The staff’s recommendation was to vote no on the petition. The council will vote at a later meeting. The staff recommendation is here. Rezoning petition is here. The application is here. The original site plan, later revised, is here.
Forum regular Ken Koontz of WENS-TV was in the chamber Monday night as the residents spoke. The video below was made from his footage.
