 Project updates

​In November 2014, voters approved $20 million for the Comprehensive Neighborhood Improvement Program (CNIP) . This​ project was selected as one of the projects to move forward under the Prosperity Village CNIP. 

This project includes the design and installation of streetscape beautification of the frontage roads, Craven Thomas Road and Robert Helms Road, off the I-485/Prosperity Church Road exit. The streetscape could include widening of the existing sidewalk to a multiuse trail, trees/shrubs, resting areas and lighting. The project could also include the development and construction of gateway identification monuments/signs/artwork to be installed on the I-485 entrance ramps and/or in some or all of the six roundabouts.​ The Arts & Science Council​ will be involved during the planning phase.

  • ​To maintain, stabilize and revitalize the neighborhood through comprehensive infrastructure improvements 

  • To strengthen the neighborhood and surrounding community 

  • To better serve bicyclists, pedestrians, and adjacent neighborhoods and businesses

​Three community charrettes (two in-person and one online) and one public meeting will be held during the planning phase. Invitations will be sent to nearby residents and meetings will be posted on this page and on Citywide Events Calendar once they are scheduled. 

​The following public meetings have taken place:

  • Public workshop on August 29, 2017 at Crossway Community Church (View presentation)
  • Online public charrette (January 30 - February 17, 2017)​
  • Community Charrette on ​December 7, 2016 at Crossway Community Church (View presentation​)​ 
  • Learn more about the charrettes and get summaries of community feedback on this page.​​

​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​
