South Charlotte Ballantyne Area News POSTED 4/1/2019
My Community Update
Our local housing market is starting to show some improvement. That usually happens this time of year. Most new construction is drifting into the South Carolina area of Indian Trail or as some call it SOBA (or South Of Ballantyne Area). Some recent resales have also shown price increases.
Please contact me for the latest in real estate developments or to answer any questions you may have about the area.
Major announcements are pending in the greater Ballantyne area. My husband has been very involved as a stake holder in several meetings regarding the future of the Ballantyne area. Details are still pending before official announcement.
On March 25th South Charlotte Partners hosted a Transportation Summit at the Ballantyne Hotel. The takeaway seems to confirm the increase chance for a light rail link to the Ballantyne area.
Novant Health which recently obtained a rezoning for a hospital facility has announced they have also contracted for an addition large property for possible further expansion in the Ballantyne area. The area needs the additional hospital and healthcare facilities as this is one of the most questioned needs residents have. In supporting this my husband Ray spoke in favor of this at a state meeting.
Both NCDOT, CDOT and the Turnpike Authority are all systems go for a number of projects that will address traffic flow in the South Charlotte area. My husband on behalf of South Charlotte Partners was involved in his letter to government officials including Gov. Cooper in giving approval to let the contract for work to start for the additional lanes needed on I-485.
In 2001 my husband founded the Ballantyne Breakfast Club with a focus on his belief that "An Informed Community is a Better Community". He was honored by local and state elected representatives and the President of Northwood Office at the January Ballantyne Breakfast Club meeting for his dedication to the community and presented with a plaque.
In addition to the Ballantyne Breakfast Club my husband founded a new organization, South Charlotte Partners LLC and served as the first Chairperson on the Board of Directors. He is now serving as a Community
advisor to that organization.
