 Project updates

In November 2014, voters approved $20 million for the Comprehensive Neighborhood Improvement Program (CNIP)​. The Kilborne Drive streetscape 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 Eastway Drive to Havenwood Road. With additional improvements to create a more complete street, Kilborne will provide a critical connection between Central and Eastway, allowing better access to Kilborne Park and future access to the planned Briar Creek Greenway, where it will cross Eastway. The intent of the improvements will be to, where possible, construct new sidewalk, provide better pedestrian crossings, traffic calming, streetscape and landscaping.   
  • To maintain, stabilize and revitalize the neighborhood through comprehensive infrastructure improvements 

  • To strengthen the neighborhood and surrounding community

  • To b​etter serve bicyclists, pedestrians, motorists and adjacent neighborhoods and businesses​a 

A public meeting was held on Thursday, June 23, 2016 to kick off the design phase. Approximately 35 to 45 people attended. Attendees filled out a survey to get information on how they currently walk, bike, drive and use public transit in the area, as well as preferred locations for a crosswalk, bus stops, on-street parking and suggestions on improving the area. Staff led two walking tours of the area to solicit further input and explain the project's goals.

Another public meeting took place on April 16, 2017 to review the proposed design concept and solicit feedback.
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​
