Building Community

Larger Context

Each new park, house, school, store, and road-in its small way-incrementally--helps to build our community. This perspective requires the Town's decision-makers to view each new development proposal in a larger context rather than as a stand-alone, isolated "pod" that bears no relationship to its neighbors.

The suburban sprawl model will not be the guiding principle of Huntersville's growth. While this model does provide some short-term advantages, it produces many more long-term inefficiencies related to infrastructure maintenance, environmental degradation, and loss of community character. Huntersville's adoption of traditional town planning principles is therefore grounded in economics as well as aesthetics.
