The City of Charlotte is partnering with Mecklenburg County to create a 26-mile trail and greenway facility that will stretch from the City of Pineville, through Center City and on to the UNCC campus and Cabarrus County line. This trail is being named the Cross Charlotte Trail. When completed, residents will be able to travel seamlessly from one end of Charlotte to the other. Approximately 98,000 jobs and 80,000 residents will be located within ½ mile of the proposed Cross Charlotte Trail. The trail will connect to many treasured places and major employment centers over the 26-mile alignment.
Proposed Public Improvement Bonds ($5 million in 2014 and $30 million in 2016)
How You Can Get Involved
Community engagement activities will occur throughout the project’s duration to keep those interested in the project informed and provide opportunities for the public to share ideas, opinions, and concerns.
The City envisions a series of formal workshops and less formal “pop-up” meetings at various venues. See below for the latest list of upcoming meetings. There will also be additional opportunities to be involved through social media.
