Study to firm up plans for Charlotte Rail Trail

A $100,000 study will help determine the detailed plans for the proposed 3.3-mile Charlotte Rail Trail that would tie South End to uptown. The City and Mecklenburg County will each contribute $30,000, and Charlotte Center City Partners will cover the remaining $40,000. The plan for the “linear park,” which would run adjacent to the Lynx light-rail system, was announced by Center City Partners in April. For more on this very promising development please see the 8/26 Charlotte Observer article.
