I'm not thrilled that the Mayor is sacrificing the Streetcar project. Let's see if we can't get to 1000 signatures in the next few days to show the Council how much it matters to those of us on the East and West sides. And folks from the South who have benefitted from the Lynx, we'd love to hear your voices too! Thanks y'all.

Connecting the East and West areas of Charlotte, would be a business boon for both areas. These areas have been ignored way too long. It will enhance the diversity and culture of our city. VOTE FOR IT!

Awesome! This initiative has gotten a lot of people speaking out against it but there are so many people who are FOR the streetcar who just don't know how to voice their support.

Exactly, I couldn't agree more.

Read this Mary Newsom article for lots of good reasons to support the streetcar -- http://plancharlotte.org/story/charlotte-nc-streetcar-transit-city-council.

Keep it up! Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

Spread the word about creating the east-west link for the Streetcar - Let's make some noise at City Council! We need to get one more council member on board!

Yes, imagine if everyone who has signed this petition showed up at the City Council meeting this Mon (the 17th) with a sign that said "We want the streetcar!" Those who oppose it showed up last time the Council voted, and they got their way. Will we show up this time?

East Charlotte needs this!

The goal is to get 1000 signatures by the City Council vote on Dec. 17. Currently there are about 100. Please consider signing or sharing if this is an interest to you!

The lightrail has been a tremendous success. The City Council voted unanimously for its extension up through the University area. The streetcar infrastructure has been started and will be a unique and sustainable method of transportation for Charlotteans and visitors to our great city. Do NOT hold this proposal hostage in order to pass your budget!

Er, can SC residents vote?

As a frequent visitor to the QC for a variety of activities, I would think the council would also be interested in hearing from neighboring residents who would use this form of transportation periodically.

The streetcar.is the thing we must live with, but we need organise more convienent to our daily life. It is the nerve of our movement. This nerve requires to be more interactive with the daily problems like air pollution and its impact on healthy environment.
