Northern Mecklenburg County is one of the fastest growing areas of the County. During the past 10 years, Cornelius, Davidson and Huntersville have seen a tremendous influx of new residents and businesses. Approximately 20 percent of all construction activity in Mecklenburg County occurs in these northern towns. That is why Mecklenburg County and the towns of Cornelius, Davidson and Huntersville agreed to partner to open an office in the northern part of the County.

· Land Development Plan Review and Inspection

Mecklenburg County's Land Use and Environmental Services Agency provides services aimed at contributing to the quality of life in Mecklenburg County.
