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 and 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.
Would you like to see more housing choices in Charlotte? More ways to walk or ride a bike to your daily destinations? A healthier environment and better access to parks?
Join Sustain Charlotte and our partners in the Neighbors For More Neighbors coalition on Wednesday, June 9th for Grow Smart CLT: Exploring the Charlotte Future 2040 Comprehensive Plan. We'll introduce you to this vision for the future of Charlotte and why it's so critical as the city grows.
Speakers include Charlotte Mayor Pro Tem Julie Eiselt, City Council Member Malcolm Graham, City Council Member Larken Egleston, City Council Member Greg Phipps, City Council Member Braxton Winston and representatives from the Charlotte Mecklenburg Planning Commission, United Way, Lakeview Neighborhood Alliance, Habitat for Humanity, Charlotte Center for Legal Advocacy, Goodwill Industries of the Southern Piedmont, and Dream Key Partners!
This will be our first event back in-person and we can't wait to see you! The event will be held at Victoria Yards, 408 N Tryon St. Resident Culture Brewing Company will be on-site selling your favorite beverages, and food trucks BIRD Pizzeria and Soul Miner's Garden Food Truck will be on-site as well. We will also have live music from Taylor Winchester.
This is a free event, with a $10 donation request to help us cover expenses. Registration is required to monitor capacity.
