The Ballantyne Fall Festival will be held at the Morrison Family YMCA on Saturday October 11th.

Activities start at 10AM and the festival will continue till 9PM.

Our next official Ballantyne Breakfast Club will be held in November with the date, location and subject to be announced. Please check back for updates.

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.

June Meeting Review

Mayor Dan Clodfelter met with residents of the South Charlotte Ballantyne Area at our June meeting.

After a very brief introduction he spent over an hour taking questions and providing insight and his

thoughts on them. He was assisted by our local District 7 City Council Representative, Ed Driggs.

Thank your Mayor Clodfelter & Representative Ed Driggs and a special thanks to the Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge

for their hospitality and to the leadership of the Ballantyne Chapter of the Chamber of Commerce

for co-hosting of this meeting.



I would like to thank all of the people who attend our meetings for their encouragement and support.

My sincere thanks also to the staff and management of the Bissell Companies and the Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge for their support of the Ballantyne Breakfast Club for the last 14 years.
