 Project updates

​​​In November 2014, voters approved $20 million for the Comprehensive Neighborhood Improvement Programs (CNIP).  The Shamrock Drive complete street upgrade project was selected as one of the projects to move forward under the Central/Albemarle/Shamrock CNIP.  

This project will upgrade Shamrock Drive from approximately Attaberry Drive to Cardiff Avenue to create a “complete street” to better serve bicyclists, pedestrians, motorists and adjacent neighborhoods and businesses. The project will include turn lanes, sidewalks, bike lanes and crossings to help create a better bike/pedestrian connection between Eastway Drive and The Plaza and, eventually, to NoDa (North Davidson area) and the CATS Blue Line Extension.

Area neighborhoods were awarded a Public Art Grant; therefore, the project team will be working with the Arts and Science Council and area residents to determine what art will be constructed and where it will be located along the project corridor.

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

  • To strengthen the neighborhood and surrounding community

  • To improve infrastructure features in the neighborhood such as storm drainage, curb & gutter​​ and sidewalk features

A series of neighborhood meetings, public meetings and stakeholder interviews were held during the pre-planning phase for the Central/Albemarle/Shamrock CNIP. To view meeting minutes and more, visit the Central/Albemarle/Shamrock CNIP​ page​.​​​​ Below is a list of public meetings that have taken place so far during the planning phase.

​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​
