Weddington Residents:

For the past month there has been much concern and angst over the school redistricting discussions that are taking place.  As your elected leaders, and as parents, the Town Council and I are watching closely the impact this may have on our community and our children.

North Carolina State Law prohibits municipalities, like Weddington, from being involved in school funding, redistricting, etc.  This function is restricted to State & County government.  However, we are in communication with school board members on how to best manage the rapid growth in western Union County.

We understand the issues of growth on our infrastructure, especially the schools.  Our Town ordinances of one home per acre are designed to promote low density housing.  This in turn reduces the impact of student populations attending our schools.  However, Weddington’s ordinances are unique to our Town and do not preclude other municipalities from having high density permitting applications.

We will continue our efforts to make the Board of Education aware of growth specific to our community in hopes of having better information for their decisions and will continue to communicate the desire to keep all residents of Weddington in the Weddington cluster.

This is a very tough and emotional issue that the School Board must address.  I encourage you to communicate your thoughts, concerns and alternative solutions to the Union County Board of Education to help resolve this important issue.

Regards,

Bill Deter
Mayor, Town of Weddington
