In 2007, with strong population growth continuing in the southeastern part of Catawba County, plans were announced for development of a “village center” with space for retail, office, medical and educational uses to serve the Sherrills Ford and Terrell communities. Plans for a “village center” were well received by citizens in that area but when the severe economic downturn followed in late 2008, plans for the village center could not proceed.
Now a fresh start has been proposed for a planned development, which would be known as The Village at Sherrills Ford.
As was the case with the first proposal in 2007, the new proposal will be accompanied by a new development agreement under which the developer is providing assets beyond those required under current land use regulations. The properties were originally rezoned Planned Development-Conditional Development, or PD-CD, in 2007 with the original village center proposal by Crescent Resources LLC. The property was sold by Crescent Resources to The Village at Sherrills Ford LLC in December 2014.
The new proposal is to develop the same five properties, totaling approximately 200 acres, revising the square footage based on current market demands. The plan sets aside space for development of approximately 325 single-family and 750 multi-family residences and 615,000 square feet for uses such as retail, office, medical and educational purposes.
In August 2008, Crosland LLC submitted a proposal to develop 44 acres for a mixed use commercial center at the intersection of Hwy. 150 and the new Hwy. 16 interchange, referred to as the Bridgewater Development. At build-out, the commercial center would include up to 206,500 square feet of building area. As part of the rezoning request, Crosland and the County executed a development agreement which laid out the specific details for the development of Bridgewater. The Catawba County Board of Commissioners approved the Planned Development-Conditional District at its meeting in October 2008.
Representatives of Catawba County, Crescent and Key Harbor Holdings have reached agreement on a development agreement for the Key Harbor, Village Center, Terrapin Creek and Mountain Creek properties. Public comment on the development agreement, amendments to the Sherrills Ford Small Area Plan, and Key Harbor and Village Center rezoning requests was heard at a public hearing of the Catawba County Planning Board, on Monday, March 26, 2007 at 7 pm at the 1924 Courthouse at 30 North College Avenue in Newton, NC. The Catawba County Board of Commissioners held a public hearing on the proposed agreement and approved the project on Monday, April 16, 2007 at 7 pm, also at the 1924 Courthouse in Newton.
