National builder Lennar wants to build a 37-house subdivision off Pineville-Matthews Road near its intersection with Covenant Church Lane in Matthews. And residents can have their say on the matter during a public hearing at 7 p.m. Monday, May 14 at Matthews Town Hall, 232 Matthews Station St.
To begin construction, Lennar needs a change in the property’s zoning classification to allow for detached single-family houses. Town commissioners are expected to vote on the proposal
Lennar, which has an office in Ballantyne, bought the property Sept. 30, according to town zoning records. The land, adjacent to the Stratfordshire subdivision and Covenant Day School’s Warner Park, would include about three houses per acre and about 3.3 acres of common open space, according to the company’s site plan submitted to the town.
Lennar entered the Matthews market in December by purchasing remaining lots in the Pleasant Ridge subdivision off Pleasant Plains Road. The 36-lot neighborhood was abandoned by Ryan Homes.
