on the draft plan recommendations. During this process, some
citizens expressed concern to Planning staff and City Council about
the land use recommendations for The Sanctuary area and a pending
rezoning (Petition No. 2011-065). As a result, Planning staff met
with this group to get a better understanding of their concerns.
group shared that their concerns extend beyond The Sanctuary
development and include parcels that are closest to lake Wylie. In
summary, their concern is about the environmental impact of higher
density on the lake. As a result of this meeting, another revision
to the draft plan is being proposed. This revision is change the
recommended land use from residential up to four dwelling units per
acre to one dwelling unit per acre for numerous parcels that are
closest to the lake. This change will not impact the existing zoning

addition, the recommended density for parcels that are approved for
development or developed with a higher density will not change.
