Check out the neighbors with Open Streets 3-mile linear park

(by Ashley Mahoney, The Charlotte Post)

"Open Streets 704 returns to the Queen City on Oct. 23 from 1-5 p.m. to explore the theory. Road closures start at 12 p.m. and end at 6 p.m. for set up and tear down.

'If you come out, expect to see what the future of Charlotte could look like when we value larger linear parks,' said Jordan Moore, [Bicycle Program] Director of Sustain Charlotte
Said Scott Curry of the Charlotte Department of Transportation: 'A big part of this event is getting people to realize that we are a lot closer than we think we are.'

By temporarily closing streets, the free event creates a linear park of over three miles.  

'Why is a 3-mile linear park an important thing for our city to experience?' Moore asked. 'This type of event is a way to do vision casting on a broad scale with our neighbors.'"
