Lake Norman waterfront homes, Relocating? Life in Lake Norman

Lake Norman’s Waterfront Neighborhood Video Tour

So, you all are my guinea pigs!  Here is my first Lake Norman video tour using my new GoPro.   This is a quick tour of some of the waterfront neighborhoods on the Brawley School Road Peninsula in Mooresville.  While I focused on The Point I also included views of two streets, Tuskarora Trail and Washam Road, that are good examples of what non-subdivision neighborhoods look like.  I also included a more rustic gravel road so that you get a better idea of what they look like.

Hopefully this will provide some insight into Lake Norman’s waterfront lifestyles.  Look for more video tours of Lake Norman in the days to come.  And feel free to request certain neighborhoods, streets or shopping areas.  My plan is also to make specific videos for buyers so they can see the actual neighborhoods they are interested in!  Any requests or input would be welcomed!

Relocating? Life in Lake Norman

Landscaping is coming to Lake Norman’s Brawley School Road!

Lake Norman's Brawley School Road Widening lacked landscaping

With the completion of the 3-year widening of Brawley School Road in Mooresville, those of us who live on Lake Norman’s wonderful Brawley Peninsula were so elated for it to be over that most of us took the lack of the promised landscaping of the center medians in stride.  What are a few weeds compared to the gift of time not spent in traffic?  Life is good!

Thankfully, the Lower Brawley School Road Beautification Committee was formed and their members have worked tirelessly with the North Carolina Department of Transportation to push them live up to their original landscape committments.

Beginning in Fall 2014, the state will begin landscaping the entire 7- mile Brawley School Road from our new Exit 35 to Southfork Road where Brawley School narrows just before entering The Point.  In their January meeting, DOT Roadside Environmental Engineer, Morgan De Witt, unveiled their plans for their specific plantings that will be placed in the widest portions of the medians.

In addition to the plantings, the rest of the medians will be sodded with Zoysia grass which is a spreading variety that is supposed to remain reasonably neat in the winter.

The NC DOT has also shared that the mowing and maintenance of the entire 7-mile stretch has been contracted and will be paid for by them.  The mowing contract will be on a 3-week schedule from May to October.

Finally, the NC DOT announced that they are funding and have plans for plantings at our new Exit 35 and additonal planting for Exits 31, 33 and 36.

I would personally like to thank the Lower Brawley School Rd Beautification Committee for its tireless work over the past 2 years!

Brawley School Road Widening Update May 2011!

 

After hearing increasing levels of frustration from so many of my Lake Norman friends, neighbors and past clients who, like me, live down Brawley School Rd. in Mooresville I started seeking out concrete information about the current work and completion date.  The North Carolina Department of Transportation was not helpful nor were the Facebook pages dedicated to Brawley School Road.

So, I turned to my friend and Mooresville Town Commissioner Miles Atkins for assistance and he came through for us! Continue reading
