Plans for the Dixie-Berryhill area have been hotly debated; residents want to retain the rural feel and historic charm of the neighborhood. Those plans call for mixed use development along major corridors -- Wilkinson Boulevard, I-485 and Sam Wilson Road, with multi-unit property is proposed for the area between Amos Smith Road and Sam Wilson Road, and lower intensity building development west of Sam Wilson and Amos Smith Roads. These areas would allow four dwelling units per acre, and west of Moores Chapel and Amos Smith Road, five dwelling units per acre will be allowed. Additionally, a 140-acre park will be carved out south of Wilkinson Boulevard; this will provide the public access to the lake and Catawba River, and allow for a public conference center.
