Future Charlotte: Building a Vision Breakfast Forum

Oct. 2016
Future Charlotte Breakfast

The Mecklenburg Times was proud to host its second annual “Future Charlotte” breakfast forum on October 14, 2015. A panel of community leaders discussed their vision for how we should build on the present, how we will live and work, what we want to become, and who will take us there.

This year’s panel talked about the transportation options the Charlotte region will have in the future. Of particular interest were issues related to how transportation plays in to residential and commercial development, and what plans exist to handle the population increase expected in the next few decades. In addition, the program examined what the state can do to keep up and build new highways now that revenues for both national and state agencies are decreasing for transportation projects.

The forum was held at the Charlotte Aviation Museum beneath the wings of US Airways Flight 1549, the Miracle on the Hudson.
