SCHOOL BUILDING SOLUTIONS COMMITTEE WILL BEGIN WORK ON MARCH 10
Charlotte, NC - Thirty-five Mecklenburg County residents charged with developing a school capital package that will be supported by the community will begin work Friday, March 10. The first meeting of the School Building Solutions Committee will be held from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. in room 267 of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center, 600 East Fourth Street, Charlotte.
