    Charlotte Greenways - The Big Picture

    What are the endpoints of the segment in your photos? Randolph Rd to the North, and does it go all the way to Providence Rd to the South? Does anyone know if grade separation is ultimately planned at 7th Street/Briar Creek to connect to the Chantilly Park segment of Briar Creek Greenway?

  3. I thought I remembered seeing reverse angle parking on 10th Street in a Site Plan for this development. Anyone know if that is still happening? Does not look like the curb line shown in these photos is in the right place for that. I'm also curious to see how engaged/active the rear side of this development will be with the future Cross Charlotte Trail. There's huge opportunity for ground level trail oriented development here - the trail will be bordered on one side by great views of the skyline over 277, and by this development on the other side.

    Plagiarism with permission seems to me like it would be ok, but it sounds like you have a strict editor if he/she won't let you mention the infestation of piranhas that will surely accompany this project in the headline.

    Someone should create an animation/gif of this same view for each year the stadium has been open. The skyline has changed a really impressive amount in the past few years!

    Traffic Congestion and Highway Construction

    http://wfae.org/post/red-light-cameras-still-under-discussion-despite-hesitations#stream/0 Bringing back the red light camera topic, though it didn't generate a lot of feedback last time I posted about it. Marcus Jones has advised City Council against installing red light cameras, arguing that there are more effective safety measures available through the City's (funded? unfunded?) Vision Zero program. I'm curious to hear the opinions of members of this group - red light cameras are politically unpopular but seem to be very effective at reducing the types of crashes that are most likely to produce fatality. In general, automatic enforcement (red light running and speed cameras) seems to me a necessary part of any credible Vision Zero program, alongside a heavy dose of engineering improvements that make geometric changes to streets to reduce the possibility of speeding automobiles in urban environments. Jones has been tasked with researching alternative safety measures and presenting those to Council in the coming weeks.

    The weather has been incredible this week. A vibrant, busy uptown last night. Romare Bearden and the baseball stadium were packed, tons of people walking and riding dockless bikes.

    Charlotte Off Topic

    http://wfae.org/post/faq-city-giant-vault-money-buried-beneath-uptown I walk by this building often and assumed it was just office space for Federal Reserve employees. Now that we know there are untold billions of dollars of cash stored underground, does anyone think John Lewis may be planning the ultimate heist to fund the Red/Silver/Airport rail lines?

    Charlotte's Light Rail: Lynx Blue Line

    I think the headline I saw on Twitter this morning was something like "Local commuters shocked and appalled they are expected to pay for parking at new BLE parking decks."
