We need this one and many more lines!
This will bring Charlotte one step closer to being a world class city.
Bring it on!
Lets do it!
Look what the lightrail did to its corridor!
We've been blasting this out to the Commonwealth-Morningside neighborhood like crazy, but we are a small neighborhood - actually the smallest in Charlotte. Just a thought...we REALLY should get Harris Teeter involved more on this. They are rebuilding their flagship store within eyesight of the proposed route and are committed to helping revitalize the area. City council really listens when a big player like them gets their word in.
Great idea, Molly! Do you happen to have a contact at Harris Teeter? If so please send to me: [email protected].
The street car is a part of a county-wide transportation and economic development strategy that contributes to the overall sustainability of the community, is an incentive to business and community development along the line and builds connectivity among neighborhoods. We built an arena, contributed infrastructure to a stadium and now are partnering on a baseball park - all good things. A street car is another piece of building community that connects parts of Charlotte.
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!
You need to finish what you start.
Well said, Bruce!
