Wednesday Sept. 2, 2009 | Charlotte: On the Way to Becoming…?September 1, 2009 at 10:19 am | Posted in Coming Up | 5 Comments
As an individual, if you don’t have a goal, you won’t achieve it. The same is true of cities. Charlotte has followed a series of plans to reach goals that have resulted in what some say is one of the nation’s most “livable cities.” But we’re also a poster child for urban sprawl and the question is “what are we on the way to becoming?” Last night, in a public conversation, leaders and citizens shared ideas on that subject. Today you’ll hear that conversation.
Pat McCrory – Mayor of Charlotte
David Walters – Architect, Urban Designer and Professor at UNC Charlotte
Mary Tribble – President, Tribble Creative Group
Tom Low – Director, Charlotte office of Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company
