Mount Holly Seeks Developer for Expansion of Veterans Park

Mount Holly Seeks Developer for Expansion of Veterans Park 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Mount Holly, NC - As part of the Veterans Park Expansion Project, the City of Mount Holly is seeking proposals for a transformative, mixed-use catalyst project from interested developers. The City's intent is to foster and encourage a signature mixed-use project for Mount Holly and the region, while retaining a 2.28-acre adjacent assemblage of land for a park and related amenities. 

During the October 2023 City Council meeting, the Council unanimously voted to direct City Staff to initiate the formal process of requesting proposals from developers for this project, to be located on a 4.808-acre site, currently located a block away from the heart of the downtown district as part of a downtown development. 

Amenities will include an amphitheater, splash pad, mixed-use development, and parking. Once completed, the park’s location will serve as the epicenter of the expanded downtown district and the Municipal Complex. The current Municipal Complex campus includes City Hall, the Grand Hall (Mount Holly’s premier event space), the police department, administration offices, the Arts on the Greenway art center, the Mount Holly Police Department Memorial Plaza, and Linear Park a vital cog in the wheel of the Carolina Thread Trail regional network.
