8 Month Moratorium on Development

Under the new agreement, an eight-month moratorium on development in this area was put in place which will prohibit Concord from extending utilities within the designated area and will not allow annexation of any residential development in the area during this time period. At the same time, Cabarrus County will consider zoning text and map amendments as a result of the recommendations made during this process. The Cabarrus County Board of Commissioners will make a final consideration of and vote on this issue before the end of the eight-month period. Then the two governing bodies will discuss another revision to the settlement agreement to reflect the time frame for further commitments to manage growth in the specified area.‚Äč
