Union County and the Town of Indian Trail are developing a Small Area Plan for the Secrest Short Cut area to guide future growth near the Monroe Expressway interchange at Unionville-Indian Trail Road. The plan aims to reflect community priorities and economic development opportunities in the changing landscape.Growth pressures are evident in this area as development projects and potential rezoning petitions are being discussed. Currently, the Secrest Short Cut study area is approximately 1,323 acres and most of land is undeveloped. About 25% of land is used for agriculture and much of developed land is for residential purposes.The Town of Indian Trail and Union County will be asked to approve the plan in mid-2018.
The draft report for the Secrest Short Cut Small Area Plan is available for review through July 31. We encourage you to read it and email any comments to Bjorn Hansen or Katie See, whose contact information is below.
