The Cross Charlotte Trail Kicks Off!
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 onto 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. The City is hosting a public workshop (regarding the segment from Brandywine to Tyvola) on Jan. 27, 2015 at the Queens University Sports/Conference Center located at 2220 Tyvola Road, Charlotte, NC 28210 from 6 - 8 p.m. Come join us and help to shape the Trail!

Charlotte Voters Approve City Bonds
Tuesday, voters approved $146 million in City bonds for public improvements, housing and neighborhood improvements.
“With the passing of the bonds, projects in our Community Investment Plan will be moving forward,” said City Manager Ron Carlee. “These projects benefit the City by creating jobs and growing the tax base, leveraging public and private investment, enhancing public safety, ensuring housing diversity and providing integrated neighborhood improvements. The projects will focus on livability, getting around and job growth which will help make Charlotte a pillar among cities.”
Getting Creative in the Community
