Howie Acres neighborhood improvement phase 2

​​​A Neighborhood Improvement Program project

Project phase


 Project updates

This neighborhood project is funded through 2000 and 2006 voter-approved bonds. The project includes infrastructure improvements such as storm drainage, sidewalks and curb and gutter. The project was built in two phases.

Phase 1 (completed in November 2008) included Trembeth, Bearwood and Redwood streets. 

Phase 2 (underway)​ includes a portion of Dinglewood Avenue. Funds to build Phase 2 were included in the 2006 voter-approved neighborhood bonds and includes the following:

  • ​Dinglewood Avenue will receive curb and gutter and storm draining along the north side of the street

  • ​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​​​​​​​

With direction from Charlotte City Council, project teams seek input from the community in order to build better projects and provide better services. Often, this input comes from the public involvement process used when building capital projects. Neighborhood public meetings are conducted by project teams and consultants in order to solicit ideas from nearby businesses and residents affected by the project and identify their concerns. Upcoming meetings will be posted on the project web page, and affected residents will receive a postcard in the mail.

$1.5 million​

​​​Please note this is the funding amount and includes all costs associated with the project such as planning and design, acquiring the right of way, utility relocation, consultant fees, construction, signalization, permits and landscaping.
