For this specific project, public meetings will occur throughout the planning phase to introduce residents to the project and get their feedback. Public meeting dates are below:

  • ​​​​October 25, 2016 at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church - In addition to providing an overview of the project, the project team would like to review and discuss where potential pedestrian crossing locations are needed along Beatties Ford Road between the Rosa Parks Transit Center and the McCrorey YMCA. ​

Extensive community engagement and outreach took place in connection with the Sunset/Beatties Ford Road CNIP planning process. For details, visit the Sunset/Beatties Ford Road CNIP page.

All upcoming public meetings for this project will be posted in the "project updates" section of this pages, as well as on the Citywide Projects Portal and on the Citywide Events Calendar

​To ​be determined

​​​​​​The Community Investment Plan approved by City Council in 2013 calls for voters to consider approval of funding for a number of infrastructure programs. Voters approved bond financing in 2014 and 2016 and will vote on further bond financing in 2018 and 2020. For this project, if voters approve funding, City staff engages the community to determine the details of what will ultimately be built. Once these details are known, the cost of the project is estimated and published. Learn more about the Community Investment Plan at http://charlottefuture.com​
