Troutman Council Approves Annexation, Commercial Zoning for 40 Acres Adjacent to Lowe’s Home Improvement
By Debbie Page, Iredell Free News
The Troutman Town Council has approved the annexation and highway business zoning for just over 40 acres, located between Lowe’s Home Improvement store and the 18-acre Food Lion shopping center site approved in June of last year.
The site, composed of 21 small properties owned by six owners, was gradually assembled over the last 20 years, according to Piedmont Landco representative Howard Bryan. Most of the property was already zoned for business use in Iredell County.
There are no specific plans for the site right now, Bryan said.
The Planning and Zoning Board unanimously recommended the annexation and HB zoning in June.
The council, chaired by Mayor Pro Tem Paul Henkel in the absence of Mayor Teross Young, approved the requests by a 4-0 vote during Thursday’s meeting. Felina Harris absent.
