Public Services FacilityThe Mint Hill Public Services Facility is a multi-use site proposed for a Town-owned parcel on Lebanon Road near the intersection with Margaret Wallace Road. The Facility will house a new fire station, a public works facility, a fuel depot, and a police department storage facility.

This project is currently in the design phase which is anticipated to last through the end of 2022. Following design, a bid phase will occur, then construction. The tentative opening for this facility is early 2024.

SidewalksLebanon Road

Two sidewalks projects are nearing completion on Lebanon Road to extend connectivity from Five Oaks Court to Green Glen Drive. The projects include two enhanced pedestrian crossings on Lebanon Road that utilize Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons to warn drivers of pedestrians in the crosswalk. This video explains the function of these crossings:

Central Drive

The Central Drive Sidewalk Project will fill a gap in the sidewalk network along a busy road. The sidewalk will follow Central Drive between Wilson Grove Road and Barkridge Road.

This project is preparing for construction which will last through 2022.

Bartlett Road

The Bartlett Road Sidewalk Project will extend existing sidewalk from Stonebridge Way to Canongate Drive.

This project is preparing for construction which will last through 2022.

Wilgrove-Mint Hill/Wilson Grove/Lawyers Road

This project is a Federally-funded grant award that will complete the sidewalk network around a significant portion of Mint Hill. It will begin at Wilgrove Park on Wilgrove-Mint Hill Road, continue to Wilson Grove Road to complete the remaining portion from Central Drive to Wilgrove-Mint Hill Road, and also complete the remaining portion on Lawyers Road from Apple Creek Drive to Wilson Grove Road. Altogether, this project will complete a 7-mile loop around Mint Hill. 

The project is currently in the planning & design phase which is anticipated to last through 2022, followed by bidding, then construction in 2023.

Town Park Projects

Veterans Memrial Park Soccer Fields

This project will replace the two existing grass soccer fields at Veterans Memorial Park with two synthetic turf fields. While simple in description, this complex project will take the majority of the 2022 calendar year to construct, rendering the soccer fields unusable until then. When completed, the fields will feature striping for full-size soccer, full-size football, and half-sized (youth) soccer. The fields will also be lighted following completion of the LED sports lighting project (see below).

This project is currently in the final design stage, followed by bidding, then construction. The fields are tentatively scheduled for construction beginning November 2022 and lasting through spring 2023.

Veterans Memorial Park Tennis Courts

The lower four-bay tennis courts are experiencing drainage problems that greatly reduce the usability of the courts. This project will demo the existing courts, make drainage improvements, and rebuild the courts. One of the four tennis courts will be converted to a pickleball court in the process.

This project is has begun construction and is anticipated to last 45-60 days (July/August 2022).

Below is a diagram showing the what the new court layout will look like.

Veterans Memorial Park Toddler Playground

The toddler playground has reached its useful lifespan with replacement/repair parts becoming obsolete and unavailable. This project will replace the playground (everything except the swing sets) with a new playground featuring inclusive items for children with disabilities.

This project is anticipated to begin construction in spring 2022 and last approximately 2-3 months once started. The lower playground , sandbox, picnic shelter, and swings will remain open during construction.

LED Sports Lighting at Wilgrove and Veterans Memorial Park

This project will bring new LED lighting to the Veterans Memorial Park soccer fields and replace existing lighting at the tennis courts, Wilgrove Park softball field, and Wilgrove tennis courts.

This project has begun the construction phase and is anticipated to last through the end of 2022.

Brief Road Park

The Town-owned 27 acres across Brief Road from the Mint Hill Athletic Association facility will be developed into a low-impact park  featuring a dog park, a playground, and hiking trails. These improvements will be constructed in such a manner as to not hinder the possible future development of the site into a full-featured park at a later date.

This project is currently in design. Construction is anticipated to last approximately 6-8 months once started. An opening date is not yet known.
