Potts Development Project Update
Crescent Acquisitions, LLC, the developer of the proposed Potts Development project, filed a lawsuit against the Town of Davidson regarding the permit for the project. As the town argued to the court, it does not believe that the circumstances warrant the continuation of the permitting process. However, the court has ordered planning staff to complete the review and issue a decision on the permit.
Therefore, as required by the court, there will be a public input session set for May 2, 2019 from 5:00 p.m.- 7:00 p.m. at town hall. This is an opportunity for citizens to express their opinions directly to the developer regarding this project. This project will also be on the planning board’s agenda for the April 29 meeting for review and comment and citizens are welcome to attend.
The town will update the citizens, to the extent possible, as the permitting process and the lawsuit move forward.
