  1. Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    Having been forced to fly through DCA and PHL on AA for the last several weeks all I can say is AA is in trouble if they keep using them as hubs. Neither appears to have the capacity or ground crews needed to handle flights and PHL interior is third-world.
  2. Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    Norwegian is flying Austin, Texas route to London. Surprised they havent started RDU, or CLT service. Fingers crossed! Guessing PVD, PIT get Aer Lingus.
  3. Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    ^ would CLT undertake construction without a commitment from AA to expand, or is this a fishing expedition?

    Not being callous? You appear to presume that poor people are poor because of their life choices. That may not be callous, but it is ignorant. I apologize to the Board for topic digression.

    Has CATS contemplated selling/leasing the air rights over the Blue Line?
  7. Triangle Economic News

    There was a proposal back around 2001 - 2004 called Eastrans. For service from Goldsboro to Raleigh to Wilson. NS was involved in the talks and potentially interested in operating the northern part of the crescent while NCRR would operate the southern portion.
  8. The Good News Report

    Population and economic development in rural countues will continue to suffer as without basic services like broadband internet and cellular service. The absence of these drives out young people and hand cuffs small and home based businesses. NC's rural countues are ideally suited to be agricultural centers but marketing and logistics without 21st century communication hampers the development of this industry sector.
  9. Misc. Uptown Projects/News

    So you're insisting Charlotte can't grow past Jacksonville, FL, Columbus, OH, Indianapolis, IN and San Francisco? Um, ok.
  10. Misc. Uptown Projects/News

    You asked about Charlotte continuing to grow and if it would up in rank, no? It all depends on who you know at UP.
  11. Misc. Uptown Projects/News

    The average growth of the cities between #17 and #13 only Charlotte, Ft. Worth and Austin have had consistently double-digit percentage growth over the last 60 years. Charlotte's average 10 year growth is about 38% with two decades of 60% plus growth. It won't take a generation to top 1 million.
  12. Misc. Uptown Projects/News

    Charlotte joins the 1 million club in 10 years, joing Fort Worth and Austin, TX and becoming the largest city in Southeast and #13 in the US.
  13. Triangle Growth - Issues & Opportunities

    As a city planner and urban designer the biggest challenge is knowledge. People need to be more aware of how the built environment impacts their health their wealth and their overall sense of well-being.
  14. Perception of Charlotte Nationwide

    Compared to say New England I would argue that no place is this segregated as here
