Hornet’s Nest Park is a key community asset and includes many amenities that residents would like to utilize. While nearly 20 percent of the Sunset/Beatties Ford CNIP area is park/greenspace, safe access to the existing parks is very limited. This project’s goal is to enhance pedestrian and bicycle connections along Sunset Road and Beatties Ford Road, and make improvements to the intersection at the entrance of the park. This will give residents in adjacent neighborhoods, as well as students and staff at Hornet’s Nest Elementary School better access by bike or foot to the park and retail at the intersection of Sunset and Beatties Ford roads. ​

​The purpose of this project is to:

  • improve accessibility to parks, 
  • connect neighborhoods,
  • improve pedestrian/bicycle safety, and
  • offer transportation choices. 

The projecte team hosted a drop-in public meeting on Tuesday, November 14, 2017, at Hornets Nest Park to discuss the project and allow residents to give feedback and share ideas with City Staff. 

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​
