Statesville CESI Project Approved with a Special Use Permit for Construction by the Troutman Board of Adjustment.

A Statesville CESI project has been approved with a special use permit for construction by the Troutman Board of Adjustment. The site plan for Weathers Creek High School includes a 150,000-square-foot school building, 1,200 parking spaces, a synthetic turf stadium, baseball and softball fields, six tennis courts, two synthetic turf practice fields, and several accessory structures.

Project civil engineer David Reese said the campus will have double car lanes to enter and exit campus from the main entrance off Overcash Road. Student parking is to the rear of the school and staff parking at the front.

More parking was added to the project so the school could host regional football games.

Bus traffic will come in on the opposite side of campus off Weathers Creek and feed to the back of the school building.

Because of topographical challenges, Reese said that a lot of dirt will have to be moved to bring the project to reality.

Reese also said the fire marshal and county emergency preparedness officials were involved in designing the school so that it meets standards to house another county emergency shelter. The gymnasium and parts of the main building are being constructed to a higher standard for that purpose.

Reese said that emergency personnel will have access to a gated road access that divides the campus. He also said that the school system is in the process of changing security monitoring equipment and said that no traffic will move on the site that they cannot see.
