More than 30 years ago, Mecklenburg County Commissioner Tom Ray tossed around an idea that was to become ""Sugar Creek Projection 70." The idea called for a comprehensive greenway system along Sugar Creek. Studies were conducted, opinions were gathered, and eventually the plan made its way into the Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation archives. We weren't ready then, and we could not have foreseen what Charlotte in the new millennium would look like.
Today, armed with improved technology, a progressive greenway master plan, and the first-hand knowledge that we are poised to lead the South as a model of successful urban and suburban development, we have another chance.
