A 2010 Neighborhood Bond Project
The Newell-South Neighborhood project is bounded between North Tryon Street, Orr Road, Rockland Road and West Rocky River Road. In November 2006, voters approved neighborhood improvement bonds for the planning and design of infrastructure improvements within the Newell-South Neighborhood. Approval of the 2010 Neighborhood Bonds allocated funding for construction of the Newell-South Neighborhood Improvement Project.
After an extensive public input process, it was determined that the proposed improvements would include sidewalk on Owen Boulevard, Kemp Street, Gray Drive, Creekstone Place, Blue Rock Drive and Rockland Drive. The project will also include an overland connector on Rockland Drive and some curb and gutter and minor storm drainage improvements. Click here to view the project limits.
Implement infrastructure improvements that will enhance the quality of life in the neighborhood.
Coordinate and collaborate selected infrastructure improvements with Newell-South residents, CDOT and Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation.
Maximize the value of neighborhood improvements through effective project management that ensures schedule, budget and quality requirements are met.
During the Real Estate Phase, a City Real Estate Agent or their Consultant will work with property owners to acquire easements necessary for construction of the project. These Real Estate Brokers are licensed by the State of North Carolina Real Estate Commission and are well versed in easement acquisitions. If your property is impacted by this project, you may be first contacted by mail, but the Real Estate Broker will always offer to arrange a personal visit with you. If there is any confusion or if you are not comfortable speaking or meeting with the Broker, please contact the City’s Project Manager, Cary Chereshkoff at 704-336-7040. The current schedule will extend the Real Estate Acquisition Phase until early 2013, with Construction beginning at the end of 2013. VIEW PLANS:
Many residents have asked to view the design plans. These are 90% plans and will be used during the Real Estate Phase. Minor changes may occur during the Real Estate Phase. The final design plans that are approved for construction will be posted on the website after the Real Estate Acquisition Phase is completed.Click here
