a. Consideration of Amending the Designation Ordinance for Edgewood Plantation, 11132 Eastfield Road, Charlotte
The HLC approved the subdivision of the property in November 2019 through the COA process. The link for the approved plan is shown below.
At its March 8th meeting, the HLC made the following motion: MS. ALTHOUSE PRESENTED A MOTION SECONDED BY MR. BARFIELD THAT THE HISTORIC LANDMARKS COMMISSION RECOMMEND TO THE CHARLOTTE CITY COUNCIL THAT THE ORDINANCE FOR EDGEWOOD FARM, 11132 EASTFIELD ROAD, CHARLOTTE, N.C., BE AMENDED TO REDUCE THE LAND INCLUDED IN THE DESIGNATION SO THAT THE AMENDED ORDINANCE INCLUDE ONLY THE AREA SHOWN IN GREEN IN THE PRESENTED PLAN. THE COMMISSION UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED THE MOTION.
During the preparation of the addendum to the designation report for the property it was discovered that the property was subdivided in the 1980s and that the owner of a portion of the designated land associated with the Edgewood Plantation was not notified of the March 8th HLC meeting where amending the ordinance for the property was considered. The additional owner has been notified of this meeting and Staff recommends that the earlier motion be retracted and that the HLC vote to: Recommend to the Charlotte City Council that the Edgewood Plantation ordinance be amended to include the interior and exterior of the Plantation House, the interior and exterior of the original log house, and all of the land associated with tax parcel 02761106 and only the portions of tax parcels 02761105 and 02761104 as shown in green in the plan below.
