In 2019, CATS in partnership with Charlotte Planning, Design + Development Department, City of Gastonia, City of Belmont, Town of Matthews, Town of Stallings, and Town of Indian Trail received a planning grant from the Federal Transit Administration. The grant would allow the CATS and partners to evaluate Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) along the proposed LYNX Silver Line light rail project.

Through the study, the team will:

  • Develop Station Area Plans
  • Outline Infrastructure Investments
  • Assess TOD Market Readiness
  • Perform an Affordable Housing Evaluation 


Throughout the study, the team will engage with the public through surveys, workshops and a series of public and community meetings. 

 

Join Us for a LYNX Silver Line Station Area Planning Community Meeting!
