This morning a 4H group of 11-15 year olds visited Old City Hall to find out more about what is in City Planning. They explored the impact of past decisions that shaped our city. After that they dove into a table challenge to work together to make tough choices as to what’s important to make Charlotte a city of opportunity for all. Ideas include complete streets and light rail for more transportation choices and mixed housing options for different price points and lifestyle choices as well as parks that provide ecosystem services as well as free safe meeting spaces and education from schools and colleges and job choices. #cltfuture2040 #tomorrowsleaders

On Tuesday, July 31, learn more about the cycle track coming to Uptown along 6th and 5th streets by stopping at pop-ups along the route. You’ll be able to look at different designs and weigh in on your favorite options.
Head over to the City’s FB page at 5 p.m. to see the City Manager’s recommended budget presentation.
Tiny park, big impact! The 10th Street Tiny Park, on the corner of 10th St. and Jackson Ave., will have a big impact on Piedmont Open IB Middle School and surrounding neighborhoods. The park will feature light boxes that can be seen both day and night. Artists David Wilson and Stacy Utley will facilitate workshops with students and community members to create narrative collages on each of the sealed tunnel entrances in the park. The artist team is currently developing the schematic designs.
Remember those temporary separated bike lanes on The Plaza?

We get it. Pedestrians and cyclists activity in the Independence Blvd area has become increasingly difficult.

Stop by our open house and help the City of Charlotte determine the best way to add sidewalk and bikeway connections to the side streets on either side of Independence from Brier Creek Rd to Mason Wallace Park and  Campbell Creek Greenway.
