A Note from Mayor Steve Huber
Welcome to the City of Locust
Locust is one of the fastest growing cities in the county and in the state of North Carolina. Our rural setting offers a broad range of housing and great schools. The close proximity to Charlotte, makes us appreciated by residents, businesses and visitors alike.
We as a city are very proud of our heritage which dates back to 1869. In 1973 we Incorporated and in the year 2009 saw the New Town Center being developed and growing from a meager corner of only one business to multiple streets with restaurants, retail stores, offices, both professional and medical/dental – which now have a new downtown feel.
We strive to keep the small town feel that we all hold near and dear to our hearts, while also offering all the conveniences of shopping and dining.
We are proud of our city and hope that you will take time to see why.
From the Mayor’s Desk,
