WEDDINGTON, N.C. (WBTV) - Weddington town leaders are expected to vote on the controversial Weddington Green development project.

A special called meeting starts at 4 p.m. Monday at Weddington High School and goes until 6 p.m. It’s followed by the regularly scheduled town council meeting at 7 p.m.

The project would redevelop 85 acres along the east side of Providence Road and the south side of Weddington Road. This area would be used for single-family homes, retail, and green space.

According to the developer, Provident Land, Weddington Green would serve as a town center with the main street that would fit in with the town’s culture and enhance it.

However, more than 2,700 people have signed a petition against the project saying the roads and schools are already full. They don’t want to see another shopping center like Waverly in south Charlotte.
