This fall, the City of Charlotte along with UrbanMain is inviting community members to help create a strategy for the Beatties Ford/LaSalle business district to realize its full economic potential in partnership with the community. Please join us on these dates for program workshops to develop the vision and workplan:
- September 19th Vision Workshop
At this visioning and consensus workshop, community members will build a vision for the new UrbanMain program. The workshop will be at East Stonewall AME Zion church at 6pm.
- October 12th Main Street 101
Learn about UrbanMain’s Four-Point Approach at this in-depth training session. Leaders from other UrbanMain programs will share their success strategies and lessons learned. This session will be at Mecklenburg County Bar Association at 9am.
- November 9th Workplan Development
At this workshop, community volunteers will apply the Four-Point approach to the vision and develop a detailed workplan that will implement the UrbanMain program at Beatties Ford and LaSalle.
Take the Community Survey
Before the September workshop, UrbanMain is asking everyone to fill out a community survey to understand how you spend time and money in the district. The survey is online and is available in paper-format at the Beatties Ford Regional Library. The survey closes on Friday, September 6th.
