Hello Wesley Chapel Residents and Neighbors,

Happy New Year! Cheers for a healthy, happy, and successful 2024.

Thank you to the Village’s dedicated staff, boards, committees, and volunteers that worked hard to make 2023 a productive year for Wesley Chapel. A quick summary of last year’s accomplishments:

  • The Village of Wesley Chapel celebrated its 25th Anniversary on July 15, 2023. Many festivities were held to commemorate this special time, including the publication of several articles detailing Village history in the Enquirer Journal, the resident sponsorship of 25 dogwood trees planted in remembrance or honor of loved ones, an art contest showcasing elementary school artists, and a family-friendly event at the park.
  • The Planning Board continued to work toward implementing the Village Vision 2050 (a comprehensive plan to guide the future growth and development of Wesley Chapel), including reviewing and making recommendations on several amendments to zoning and subdivision ordinances.
  • The Village partnered with Union County and NCDOT to submit a grant application to CRTPO for intersection improvements at Cuthbertson and New Town Roads. The Village also submitted an application to study potential improvements to the intersection of Billy Howey and Waxhaw-Indian Trail Roads.
  • The Parks and Recreation Committee hosted several successful community events, including a spring egg hunt, two movie nights, summer concerts, a car show, the fall bash, and a winter event. As always, Southbrook Church was an amazing partner for the Easter Eggstravaganza.
  • The Village partnered with Litter Busters of Union County for a productive fall litter sweep. Volunteers collected over 10 bags of trash from our roadsides.
  • The Village hosted National Night Out in partnership with the Union County Sheriff’s Office, Wesley Chapel Fire Department, Food Lion, and other community partners to build relationships and provide safety and crime prevention information. Thank you to law enforcement and public safety officers for working hard to keep Wesley Chapel a great place to live and raise a family. Residents, please lock your vehicles and do not leave valuables in sight.
  • The Communications Committee had a busy year sharing local news and information on social media.
  • The Village hopes to go live with a new website in February 2024. Please follow us on social media or sign-up for emails on the website for more information about local events and issues.
  • The Village has completed engineering design and obtained construction permits for dam improvements at Dogwood Park. The Village submitted a grant application to FEMA’s High Hazard Potential Dam Program and hopes to secure funding in the spring for construction in summer.
  • The Village continues participation in the Western Union Municipal Alliance (WUMA) to advocate for regional issues impacting western Union County, including land use planning, infrastructure and transportation concerns, and economic development.

Happy 2024! Hope you have an amazing year, full of blessings and quality time with family and friends.
