Cornelius commissioners voted 5-0 Monday night to create a new Pre-Development Review Committee that will guide developers before they file applications for new projects. The board also agreed to let Modern Nissan on US 21/Statesville Road expand its car lot. And commissioners endorsed a deal with NC Department of Transportation to repair Jetton Road.
The board also approved spending $11,000 in donated funds on improvements at the Cornelius Animal Shelter on Meridian Street. And they heard about plans for an average 4 percent rate increase beginning July 1 for customers of the town-owned ElectriCities electric utility.
The meeting also included a closed session, to consider a possible real estate acquisition and unspecified contractual matters. Read the full story

Contractors for NC DOT worked Wednesday night on West Catawba Avenue (foreground), where the DOT is installing a right turn lane onto Westmoreland Road (left). See another photo below (James Sanders photo)
Nighttime work is underway on two road projects along Catawba Avenue in Cornelius. Reader James Sanders was out with his camera Wednesday night to document the scene.
The NC DOT is installing a right turn lane from northbound West Catawba Avenue onto Westmoreland Road. And in the Exit 28 area, contractors are starting work on resurfacing the bridge over I-77, as the DOT prepares to shift traffic to a crossover “diverging diamond” pattern. The change is designed to smooth traffic flow through the area.
The work on both projects is happening mostly at night and on weekends, with some lane closures possible. (See more in our March 31, 2014, item, “Earth is moving on Exit 28, West Catawba Road projects.”)
