The proposal is to construct a 5-story hotel with 2 additional levels for underground parking.  At this time, the developer, CN Hotels, does not know which hotel will be interested but has experience developing the following hotels in Charlotte:

    1. Super 8 at I-77 & Exit 1 – Westinghouse Blvd (Paramount Carowinds)
    2. Best Western at the corner of Independence Blvd and Sardis Rd. North
    3. Home 2 Suites at I-77 and Tyvola Road and Nations Ford Road

This is your chance TO MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD !!!

The Ivey (www.theivey.com), Brighton Gardens, and the families living adjacent to the property have major concerns about the type of structure proposed for such a small piece of land along primarily residential Park South Drive:

Safety impact on the at-risk frail elderly population, many of whom have Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of memory loss.  Currently, their environment is serene and beautiful.

Safety impact on the families with children (18 under age 10) who are adjacent to the back of the lot.
Increased traffic, noise, and light.  Charlotte DOT has estimated an additional 880 cars per day along that area of Park South Drive.

Potential damage and disruption to adjacent properties from potential extensive use of dynamite to cut through rock on the land.

Lack of continuity or compatibility of design and appeal with surrounding environment since proposed hotel is not yet known.
