​West Boulevard Corridor Vision

For over twenty years, the City of Charlotte has invested in corridors because of the critical role each plays in supplying basic needs and opportunities for their communities.

In partnership with the West Boulevard Neighborhood Coalition, the City of Charlotte is leading a study that will serve as a first step in providing a vision for the corridor focused on the intersections of Remount, Clanton and Old Steele Creek. Over the course of two workshops we will discuss what we've learned about the existing corridor, identify opportunities for investment and envision future change. Help us create a shared vision for West Boulevard as a vibrant corridor into the city. 

Our final workshop was held on Thursday, February 7th at 6 PM at Greater Mount Sinai Baptist Church, 1243 West Blvd. At our final workshop :

Summarized the findings of the market study;
Shared strategies for implementation; and 
Presented the community’s shared vision for the corridor and solicited feedback.

A final report will be posted on the project's webpage.
