Beatties Ford Road/Mt. Holly-Huntersville Road Small Area Plan This plan offers a number of transportation and land use recommendations, including retail/commercial development at the intersection of Beatties Ford Road and Mt. Holly-Huntersville Road; low and medium density residential development along Beatties Ford Road; and a mixed use low intensity “urban village”, immediately adjacent to the Long Creek Elementary School. An important component is the creation of a new street network, which will accommodate both local and regional traffic demand.
