City of Charlotte Celebrates 100 Miles of Sidewalks and Kicks-Off the Watch for Me NC Campaign

Charlotte, NC— The City of Charlotte is celebrating 100 miles of sidewalks while launching this year's Watch for Me NC campaign.

These City, County and State partnerships benefit the community in supporting additional mobility solutions and safety for residents while making Charlotte more walkable.
