With 50 people moving to Charlotte every day it's critical that we grow smarter. To help, in 2018 we launched an event series called Grow Smart CLT. These fun yet informative events explore the multiple challenges that Charlotte faces due to our rapid increase in population and how these can be overcome through smarter growth.
We are excited to announce that our Grow Smart CLT event series will return in 2019 on the second Wednesday of every other month from 6-8 p.m. See the event dates below.
Join us for our next event presented by Kimley-Horn Wednesday, May 8 from 6-8 p.m. at Sharon Towers (5100 Sharon Rd.)!
Tickets are $10 for non-Sustain Charlotte members (donate at least $5/month or $60/year) and free for members. Interested in becoming a member to attend the events for free? Click here.
Charlotte is in the process of finalizing the vision for what will be a transformative project for the SouthPark neighborhood. An approximately 3-mile urban design corridor project that will not only connect adjacent neighborhoods around the central core of the SouthPark business district but will also provide a mixed facility environment for bicycles and pedestrians that will allow people to make easier connections throughout SouthPark without getting in their vehicles.
When complete, the framework plan will highlight opportunities for positive quality of life enhancements, “place-making” and immediate and long-term economic development benefits.
Kyle Baugh with Kimley-Horn, the lead design consultant for the Framework Plan currently underway, will present the vision behind the Loop, national best practices for similar facilities, as well as case study examples of what a facility like this will mean to the community.
