PUBLIC CAN VIEW RECOMMENDED PLAN
FOR LITTLE SUGAR CREEK GREENWAY
COMMUNITY WORKSHOP SCHEDULED FOR SEPTEMBER 23
Charlotte, NC – As the Little Sugar Creek Greenway moves from imagination to drawing board to reality, citizens of Mecklenburg County will have the opportunity to view the final product of their input and vision. The Stewardship Advisory Council in conjunction with the Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation Department will host a community workshop to present the recommended final master plan of the Little Sugar Creek Greenway.
The workshop will be held on September 23, 2002, at 6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria of St. Ann's Church, 3634 Park Road, Charlotte. It is the final stage for public input and one of the last chances for citizens to suggest changes to the plan.
The Little Sugar Creek Greenway has the potential to become a defining landmark in Charlotte and Mecklenburg County. The greenway will eventually cut a 12.5-mile swath of green from Cordelia Park in north Charlotte to the South Carolina border. It will allow walkers, runners, bikers, rollerbladers, etc., to travel up and down the banks of Little Sugar Creek, enjoying everything that nature has to offer. It will also provide a sanctuary for the many species of wildlife that call Mecklenburg County home.
The Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation Department and the Stewardship Advisory Council hosted two workshops last month, to gather input and information from the citizens who will benefit from the greenway. The September 23 meeting is the culmination of those two workshops, with the presentation of the recommended final master plan.
