  1. I was wondering if there are potential environmental liabilities that he (or anyone else, really) would be unwilling to assume at any price (even $1, or free, or less than free). But if the city owned the land, like I think they do with the current stadium, then Mr Tepper would consider building there as a tenant. That seems reasonable to me.
  2. I agree, and cannot find anything that backs up the Observer's 22-gate statement. The airport's Destination CLT page says 8-10 (https://cltairport.mediaroom.com/destination-clt)
  3. I watched the virtual presentation linked on that page earlier today and thought that they were definitely not going with the satellite terminal, and were also ruling out extending A and further north than the next phase. Maybe those are not permanently ruled out, but at least not under consideration for 2028.
  4. If I understand your question, yes, that's allowed, and it's not at all unusual. They do try to prevent duplication of three-digit highway numbers within a state, but they can be reused in another state if needed. In addition to the I-840's you pointed out, there's an I-240 in Oklahoma City, Memphis, and Asheville, and an I-440 in Little Rock, Nashville, and Raleigh.
  5. From the NY Times today. I am starting to warm up to seeing ", N.C." every time Charlotte is mentioned in the news, so this article made me twice as happy. But is Myers Park now outside of the city?
  6. No idea why I did not think to take a picture, but this morning I was walking along CLT Concourse B and passed an empty gate. (As we all know, American Airlines runs every gate on B) The monitor above the desk would have shown info about the next flight scheduled to depart from that gate, but I guess none was scheduled anytime soon. So, instead, the monitor said "Welcome to Charlotte, NC"
  7. In Feb 2016, they announced the date/time/route of the Panthers Super Bowl Victory Parade the week before the actual game. Tuesday, 11:30am, starting from the Bank of America Stadium players lot, east on Morehead, then north on Tryon to 9th Street.
  8. That was my experience last summer at PHX, too.
  9. I have no information, other than I spotted a deed from King's to Zalecki Family Limited Partnership that was recorded back in January. Last time I walked by, there was a sign in front of one of the buildings on Lamar Av that advertised office space for rent.
  10. Something that I did not know until recently is that the truck lane restrictions in N.C. do not apply to every vehicle that most of us would consider a "truck". They're for 3+ axles with gross weight ratings of at least 26,000 pounds. That would include the typical 18 wheeler, but not a big box truck, or most pickups towing cargo trailers or campers. If you see something that does look like a violation, please call *HP to report it (if you can). Those lane restrictions are there for your safety (and that truck driver's safety too). Those huge trucks have massive right-side blind spo
  11. Also at CPCC, I am pretty sure that they re-opened the garage at 7th and Charlottetowne, just in time for them to fence off the big surface lot on 7th between the garage and Kings.
  12. Since it says that you live in Elizabeth, I am guessing that your interest is in the City of Charlotte Historic District Commission designated type of historic district, rather than the National Register Neighborhood type. And I am also guessing that your interest might have something to do with the letter to the editor in the recent ECA newsletter that was in favor of an Elizabeth historic district. I am trying not to go on a rant, but I lived in a Charlotte city-designated historic district for 10 years. At first, I was really quite excited about the idea of living in one of our prote
  13. As long as the appraisal process is fair, I would not say that the property tax is very regressive, or at least not systematically regressive (like a 10% sales tax on groceries would be). However, it totally does have the potential to hurt specific homeowners in areas where land values are rapidly increasing, and their stories can be heartbreaking. I don't know what to do about it, except to be thankful that Mecklenburg and Charlotte do not rely exclusively on property taxes. I don't think you need to lose sleep about your 2011-18 taxes. After any of these appraisals -- the big schedu
  14. ^Congratulations! No cut for us -- actually a 25% increase -- but we were pleasantly surprised that the appraised value seemed reasonable this time. Eight years ago we had to do a formal appeal because the initial assessment was insanely high. We won, but I hated every minute of that process.
  15. This article reminds me of why I was a little let down by the promise of the Eastland Mall streetcar (as a resident of that area). January 2007 Charlotte Observer LAY TRACK. WAIT YEARS. RIDE - PLAN: STREETCARS TO ROLL A DECADE AFTER RAILS IN PLACE SOME PERPLEXED AS LIGHT RAIL GETS HIGHER PRIORITY In the next two years, the city will install streetcar tracks on Elizabeth Avenue, expanding urban growth beyond uptown and introducing a new type of transportation to the city. Except for this: Streetcars won't start running until 2019. The full line will open in 2023. The Metro
