CONCORD — The Concord City Council approved the rezoning of more than 40 acres of land on Eva and Poplar Tent roads that could pave the way for a new, age-restricted community.
The land, which is owned by the Frye family, was rezoned to Residential Compact Conditional District at Thursday’s monthly meeting.
The Fryes would sell that portion of their land to a developer, who has proposed plans to build 120 single-family homes.
The City Council amended its 2030 Land Use Plan to make the property meet its standards.
Additionally, the North Carolina Department of Transportation will add left-turn lanes in all directions at the intersection of Eva and Poplar Tent roads.
The Fryes would keep the bowling alley, skating rink and pond along Poplar Tent Road, but would sell the land where the driving range sits.
All entrances into the new community would be along Eva Road.
The proposed housing development will have a dog park and an amenity with an outdoor fire pit, bocce ball, shuffle board and indoor seating areas.
The units will be in an age-restricted community, meaning homeowners must be at least 55 years old.
