Important Community Wide Notice
On Saturday, September 20th from 9AM till noon there will be a District 7 Town Hall Meeting at Providence High School. This is an important meeting to attend it has been called for by our District 7 City Council Representative Ed Driggs. The topic is how we need to manage growth in our district. Is it becoming out of control due to urban style dense rezonings, congested roads, over crowded schools and lack of considertion in funding for the district in the upcoming budget.
Representatives from the Charlotte Planning Department, CDOT, Schools and Director of Budgets will be attending to take questions. Your participation and questions are needed.
No meeting in October because on Saturday October 11th we'll all be at the Ballantyne Festival
which is at the Morrison Family YMCA. Look for all of you there.
Standing room only at the August 16th meeeting. Very informative presentation by CMS Superintendent Dr. Morrison.
Great question and answer session followed with some discussion on taxing authority being given to CMS by the county.
Co-Chair of the School Board Tim Morgan and School Board Representative Paul Bailey made a compelling case for this.
City Council District 7 Representative Ed Driggs provided the meeting with any update on a recent rezoning petition to
develop 240 apartments across from the Morrison Family YMCA. Ed took over an hour addressing numerous questions on this petition.
