On February 4, 2019, the UNC Charlotte Urban Institute and Lake Norman Economic Development Corporation released the 2018 North Mecklenburg Demographic and Housing Assessment. This report presents the findings from a demographics and housing assessment for the northern part of Mecklenburg County, North Carolina (North Mecklenburg).
The North Mecklenburg region includes the towns of Huntersville, Cornelius, and Davidson. Situated just north of the City of Charlotte and on the eastern shore of Lake Norman, these suburban communities have experienced tremendous growth over the past few decades.
This study provides information on housing and demographic conditions in North Mecklenburg to the LNEDC, town governments, residents, and businesses. It is intended to serve as a starting point and to inform community dialogue and decision-making as the three towns grapple with the opportunities and challenges of growth and inclusion in the short and long term.
This study was conducted by the UNC Charlotte Urban Institute from May 2018 to January 2019 with funding provided by the Lake Norman Economic Development Corporation.
