“Envisioning Greenway Expansion at Briar Creek” will be Sunday, April 22 at 2pm


This is a community-wide event hosted by the Plaza Midwood Neighborhood Association,  Plaza Midwood Merchants, Charlotte EAST, Chantilly Neighborhood Association, Commonwealth-Morningside Neighborhood Association, Merry Oaks Neighborhood Association, Sustain Charlotte and Greenways for Mecklenburg


Originally planned to be complete in 2018, the section of Briar Creek Greenway from Central to Monroe was approved in a bonds measure that won overwhelming support by Mecklenburg County voters in 2008.  Now, the county has delayed funding for the project – greenway planning on this section will not even start until 2023.


Neighborhood groups and foundations are advocating to County Commissioners for a 200-mile connected greenway network to be complete by 2035 – with an immediate goal of completing 9-10 miles of greenways per year – doubling current greenway plans


The event will begin with remarks on a ‘DirtWay’ portion of the planned greenway across from Del’ish on 2801 Central Ave.  After the short walk, the event will continue at Legion Brewing, 1906 Commonwealth Ave, for remarks.  County Commission and City Council members are expected to attend.  The event is family friendly


Images on static displays are available for distribution on request
