Newsrack Ordinance:
The City of Charlotte adopted a newsrack ordinance effective July 1, 2009.  It is a citywide ordinance with a special, modular newsrack zone on Tryon Street between Ninth and Hill streets.  All publications must register with the Charlotte Department of Transportation beginning July 1, 2009. The modular newsrack zone spaces are assigned by a lottery and draft. Cost for inclusion in the modular units is $50 per space.  For more information please contact Jennifer Keyes at  or Doreen Szymanski at
