  1. That includes the Catholic Church and it's clergy... but we digress.

    ^ would that be a neon Stanley Drug sign hidden behind the encasement?
  3. Charlotte Greenways - The Big Picture

    Latest from Park & Rec on the timetable for Greenway construction. One of the more interesting critical links that is now funded to the tune of 4,765,000 is the extension of the Stewart Creek Greenway from its current terminus at State Street to Trade, but the real game changer is Trib 2, the section that will take the Greenway under I-85 to Blenhein Rd. This will go directly thru what is an incredibly beautiful natural area that borders Lakewood. The woods and terrain in this section have the real, and pretty immediate potential to be an incredible mountain biking area just a 15 minute bike ride from Uptown. 2017.08.07 GAC Meeting_FY18 and FY19-23 CIP Approved Greenway Projects (1).pdf

  7. Charlotte trying to be more bike friendly

    I have no problem with this at all. Given that Oregon does not have a sales tax, this new law imposes a $15.00 excise tax that goes directly towards improving biking infrastructure and safety. It does ( in the words of Earl Blumenauer ) give cyclists some skin in the game. It is imposed on those who purchase a bike that costs over 200.00 and has a wheel diameter of 26" and greater. Our 7.5% sales tax on a 200.00 bike already puts $15.00 into the general fund.

    The NCNB tower was finished, and it looks like the secondary development on that block ( the Radisson Plaza) was already glassed in, so I'd put a date of 1976-77 on this pic.

    CLT Bike Camp is in the middle of its first week. The beginner and intermediate camps were sold out. Kids on two wheels safely navigating and exploring all that our community has to offer. There may be no better entry that can better reflect "Charlotte trying to be more bike friendly".

    I know this is off subject a bit, but Area 15 and Carlos Espin are community treasures that have incubated and fostered a wide and diverse range of what are now community treasures on their own . It embraced the concept of a Recyclery more than 10 years ago and now it sells more "new to the owner" bikes than probably any shop in the State of North Carolina, and has given away more than a thousand bikes to deserving kids through their Earn a Bike program.. It also was the launching point for Not Just Coffee, another success story that I know many on this board have experienced and enjoyed.

    Word has it that CLT Bike Camp has sold out and closed registration for their First Wheels ( youngest riders) this month and Rolling Ready in July. There are only just a few remaining for the Hard Gears camp ( most experienced riders ) to be held in August . www.cltbikecamp.org
