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 hosted a public workshop (regarding the segment from Brandywine to Tyvola) on Jan. 27, 2015 at the Queens University Sports/Conference Center.
