Downtown Core 11x17 (1)_edited_edited.jpg



Previous planning studies related to the Downtown include the 2006 Downtown Master Plan and the 2040 Community Plan. The 2022 Downtown Plan will both update the 2006 Plan and follow adopted 2040 Plan policies and action priorities. The 2022 Downtown will be reviewed by the Huntersville Planning Board and eventually considered for adoption by the Huntersville Town Board of Commissioners. The Plan is expected to be completed by summer 2022. 

As we move forward, PLEASE STAY INVOLVED!! This website will be updated regularly, and new information will be posted here as soon as it becomes available. You will also be able to attend or watch Downtown Plan Steering Committee Meetings on the Town’s Facebook page. There will also be three Public Forums (January 27th, March 24th, and May 26th) where citizen input will be encouraged.
