Land Development Plan Update
Posted on 11/15/2021
LDPThe Statesville Planning Department has announced that the timeframe for approval of the proposed 2045 Land Development Plan (LDP) has been extended to give staff an opportunity to address the concerns and comments raised by the public thus far in the process. The draft LDP can be viewed at www.statesvillenc.net/ldp.

Any changes to the draft plan will be made available to the public on the City’s website. The Planning Board will continue its review of the draft plan at its January 25, 2022 meeting. Its recommendation and the plan will be presented to City Council on February 7, 2022. A public hearing is also scheduled for that meeting. Adoption of the plan is set for February 21, 2022.

The Land Development Plan process began in Spring 2020, with a charge to update the current plan which dates back to 2004. In September, 2020, a public workshop was held at the Civic Center to get input on how the community would like the City to grow. A website was initiated at this time – www.statesvillenc.net/ldp - so that the public could keep up with the work as it progressed.

The consulting firm Clarion Associates, in conjunction with Rose & Associates Southeast, Inc., has worked with a nine-member team, made up of representatives from the City Council and Planning Board, Iredell Economic Development Corp, Iredell-Statesville Schools, Chamber of Commerce and the development community, to guide the process.

The planning process also included several rounds of wider public feedback and participation, in the form of open houses and online surveys. The plan website illustrates the plan development timeline, public feedback processes, and contains some of the preliminary supporting documents for the plan, like the market report and the development and land use profile.
