Quarterly Developer's Workshop
The Developer’s Workshop is an opportunity to share a development proposal with the Board of Commissioners before going through the expense of the design and engineering process. Anyone is welcome to bring their idea before the Board. However, the workshops are primarily intended as a platform to solicit feedback from the Board of Commissioners regarding development proposals that may deviate from the Land Use Plan or for projects that depend on exceptions to the code.
What You Need to Know
The first month of each quarter is open to three applicants. The workshop is held the night of the regularly scheduled Board of Commissioners meeting for that month.
The meeting location is Town Hall (4430 Mint Hill Village Lane). Each applicant is provided twenty minutes, generally divided into a presentation and Q & A. Technology is available for your presentations (i.e. projector, laptop) if you choose to present. There are no applications, fees or submittal requirements.
How to Sign Up
Email your request to the Town Clerk with a brief one or two sentence description of what you plan to discuss. *Please make sure you discuss the proposal with Planning Staff before signing up.
Note: The deadline is three (3) weeks before the scheduled workshop. Signing up does not automatically place you on the agenda. You must receive confirmation from the Town Clerk.
