Lake Norman by the Numbers

Our lakeside lifestyle and short commute times to Uptown Charlotte have combined to drive a population boom in the north Mecklenburg County communities of Cornelius, Davidson and Huntersville. With the growth, local officials have worked closely with the City of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, and the NC Department of Transportation to extend utility services and improve roadways and Interstate access. These efforts paved the way for significant residential growth.
