Notes on the Geography of Great Mirror: Photo 1
A typical section-line road in the annexed area, loosely called East Norman. It looks very rural, but there isn't a single square mile that hasn't been subdivided since 1960 into scores of lots. Such property snippping is no longer legal out here: new lots are generally held to a minimum of 10 acres. Still, thousands of smaller lots--most not yet build upon--are grandfathered and legal. The houses out here are on wells and septic tanks, and the question of water quality in Lake Norman continues to worry many people, especially as the density of houses increases.One more thing: the name Lake Norman was quickly replaced by someone with heaps of imagination. The lake is now known as Lake Thunderbird.
