In November 2014, voters approved $20 million for the
Comprehensive Neighborhood Improvement Program (CNIP). The Central/Kilborne/Norland intersection & roadway upgrade project was selected as one of the projects to move forward under the
Central/Albemarle/Shamrock CNIP. This project is one portion of the Old Potter Road Trail that was presented during the CNIP pre-planning phase. Project limits are from approximately Elkin Lane to Roanoke Avenue.
This is the central neighborhood node connecting the two sides of the Old Potter Road (as well as a neighborhood retail node along the future
CityLYNX Gold Line). The project would include pedestrian and bicycle improvements at the intersection (and approaches) and an upgrade to the historical public space near the intersection to create community identity.
Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation is nearing construction of a new parking area, entrance and trail improvements to the Evergreen Nature Preserve off of Norland Road. The complete street upgrade between Central and the nature preserve would include sidewalks, bike lanes (or other facilities) and wayfinding.
