Lake Norman Area Information

Detailed Demographic and Statistics for
the Mecklenburg County area of Lake Norman

The three North Mecklenburg Towns of Huntersville, Cornelius and Davidson call the Lake Norman Area home. Each of these communities offers residential and recreational opportunities on the lake. The close commute to downtown Charlotte (15 miles for Huntersville, 20 miles for Cornelius, or 22 miles for Davidson) combined with the peaceful yet active lifestyle of Lake Norman has been responsible for a population boom in north Mecklenburg since the mid 1990s.

During this same period, relationships forged with the City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County produced extended coverage of utilities like water and sewer and work with the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) improved roadways and increased access to Interstate 77. These efforts paved the way for residential growth indicated in the chart below:

The growth rate of the Lake Norman region is also much greater than that of the State of North Carolina, Mecklenburg County and the City of Charlotte. This chart shows the extent of the growth in Huntersville, Cornelius and Davidson compared to fairly consistent growth that took place in Charlotte and Mecklenburg County.

*2004 figure is an estimate

In 1990, only two percent of Mecklenburg County was comprised of residents from Huntersville, Cornelius, and Davidson. However, based on estimates from the US Census, that number grew to nearly 8% in 2004. That fact is important when you realize that Charlotte's residents have consistently accounted for about 77% of the population of Mecklenburg County over that same period 14-year period.

Additional information about each of the North Mecklenburg Towns in the Lake Norman region can be found below, listed in order as you travel North from the City of Charlotte.
