Consultants will present the proposed alignment for the Caldwell Station Creek Greenway at a public workshop Thursday, May 23. The $2 million, 2-mile greenway will link Bailey Road Park on NC 115 with US 21 near the Home Depot.
The meeting runs 6:30 to 8pm at Cornelius Town Hall, 21445 Catawba Ave.
The project is the first since the town adopted a Pedestrian Master Plan last year, which envisions a variety of pedestrian and cycling paths in town. Troy Fitzsimmons, director of Cornelius Parks, Arts, Recreation & Culture (PARC), has said it could be the first in an eventual “emerald necklace” of paths around town. Read the full story

A 17-year-old Cornelius woman was cited for failing to yield after a collision with a bus full of students from a local day care last Thursday on Catawba Avenue. The woman’s pickup rolled over, but neither she nor others were seriously injured.

The Nov. 14 power outage that knocked out power to parts of Davidson and Cornelius started overnight when a voltage regulator at the Mt. Zion electrical substation exploded, shooting oil and fire 20 to 30 feet around the regulator, Electricities officials told Cornelius Town Board members Monday. That oil and fire burned a substation transformer, melted wires and damaged other equipment, requiring crews to rebuild about 2/3 of the station.
That information was among the details Electricities spokesman Craig Norfolk shared with Cornelius Town Board members Monday night. The preliminary results of the investigation indicate the voltage regulator winding insulation was wearing down, he said. Read the full story

Despite Friday’s news that Cornelius Police had arrested a suspect in a series of house fires in her Glenridge neighborhood, Kelly Dawes still sleeps with a bag packed by the door, ready to evacuate in a moment’s notice. It’s a safety measure she adopted months ago after the suspicious fires began. The Meadow Crossing Lane resident said the arrest is “fantastic progress,” but she remains wary because “we don’t know what happens next,” she said.
Police on Friday arrested Robert Prevatte, 31, on two counts of first-degree arson, two counts of second-degree arson and two counts of burning personal property. The charges are related to four suspicious fires at homes on Meadow Crossing Lane since December. Read the full story

To the Editor,
I find remarks concerning the perception of a lack of police presence in the Glenridge community that have been recently reported in the local press to be unfortunate and highly inaccurate. They are NOT reflective of the majority of opinions in the community, and certainly NOT reflective of the opinions of our Glenridge Homeowners Association Board of Directors. Read the full story
