Settler's Point Master Planned Development Conditional Zoning (MPC-CZ) application:

The Settlers Point Master Planned Development Conditional Zoning (MPC-CZ) application involves the rezoning of approximately two hundred seventy-two (272) acres of property, south of Interstate 40 (I-40), to the Master Planned Development Conditional Zoning Designation allowing for development of various land uses.  The proposal calls for the creation of three (3) individual development districts, specifically:

1. District 1 - Light Industrial/Manufacturing and Research – The district is located west of Old NC 86/south of Interstate 40 and is intended to provide for light industrial/manufacturing and research operations. 

2. District 2 - Commercial – The district is located east of Old NC 86/south of Interstate 40 and is  intended to provide for high intensity office uses and supporting retail and services including restaurants and hotels.  

3. District 3 – Residential Continuing Care – The district is south of District 2 and is intended to provide senior housing opportunities.  The proposal calls for the following development breakdown:

          a. The Multi-Family District: Located within the southern portion of the project along Old NC 86, and Gladys Lane intended to provide for low to moderate intensity office uses as well as multi-family residential uses with a maximum allowable density of 10 units per acre.

          b. Single Family District: Located within the southeastern most portion of the project along Old NC 86 and north of Destiny Drive, intended to provide for single family residential (continuing care) uses.
