Ex-Panther Plans Day Care and Townhomes near Olympic High

(May 17, 2008) Mike Minter, former Carolina Panther defensive safety, and former teammates Mike Rucker, Stephen Davis, and Muhsin Muhammad are owners in a group that plans to build a day care facility and townhome community on the southwest corner of Brown-Grier Road and Sandy Porter Road. This will require rezoning from the current R-3 to INST(CD) for the day care site and R-8MF(CD) for the townhomes. See Petition 2008-111.

The day care would be part of their Ruckus House Learning Center chain. The first Ruckus House opened in Harrisburg in 2005, and the second recently opened in the Moss Creek Village community near Concord. The day care would be approximately 20,000 square feet and could accommodate 300 kids. It would have a gym as well as classrooms for a pre-school.

According to their web site, "The Ruckus House concept came about when several professional football players from the Charlotte, North Carolina region began looking for childcare for their own families. While some daycare facilities offered excellent academic programs and others focused on play, the players were looking for something more: a program that combines education, play and a third ingredient: building Christian character."

The townhome section would contain from 35 to 40 for-sale townhomes.

Four single-family residences are currently on the site.

A public hearing is scheduled for July 21. As this is a conditional rezoning, the petitioners are required to hold a community meeting. The site and time will be announced on this web site as soon as it's known.
