State enviromental officials have ordered Lincoln county not to issue any more sewer permits because it has reached the limits of its waste water sewage treatment capacity.

This means that growth in eastern Lincoln county will be slowed or stopped for atleast 18 months. Those subdivisions that are already being built and have been approved for their permits will be able to proceed, but only with the first phase of their projects.

In short, you may be asking what can be built?

Only facilities that are 'essential to the health and well being of the citizens of Lincoln county.' - meaning Carolinas Medical Center Lincoln and the proposed YMCA may proceed, but not new subdivisions or shopping centers.

Eastern Lincoln county encompasses the up and coming Denver area of Lake Norman, on the western shore of the lake.

We ahvent heard anything yet. But then again, the first post here was the first we heard about it.

I guess it can be good ; to try to control the development until the sewer system is fixed.

Mom
we live in Medford right now but our house in Denver is being built. Friends of ours looked and bought in Denver, told us, we went to visit, saw the area, schools etc and liked it.W e hope to move around July 4th if we can sell our house. Our boys love to visit there and watch the house going up.

We are looking for a fresh start, a better environement for the boys and not to be so stressed out.

New developments have been postponed. There are still several thousand already approved homes and homesites available. The halt on "new" developments will actually give planners a chance to provide for essential services before they are overtaxed. Denver is in better shape now that the threat of overrunning the infrastructure has been handled.

Default That's a shame

That's a shame because Denver could use some shopping centers and restaurants. We looked very hard in Denver but found that there weren't many conveniences and access to Lake Norman was very limited. We ended up purchasing North of Hickory.

I guess that will keep the traffic down on 150.

Anyone know how the Route 16 development is going? I know lots of realtors bought up lots of land in the area because of the 16 going in.
The areas of 16 in Hickory and Denver were started last I knew, what about the rest?
