I wish it were this location across the street.  Nevertheless, the momentum on this part of Central Avenue is still a positive.

That location is going to be demoed, it is just a question of when and what goes there (i.e. how many stories).  I'm a little surprised it hasn't happened yet.

Just looking at the aerials and realizing how much  opportunity  for a truly dense "neighborhood/downtown/entertainment" district their is being wasted. I know we still need parking because transit he

Some utility work at the independence bridge on pecan. Two guys were working on the little black poles on the sidewalk. Any idea what those are? One on each side of street (red arrow points to one)

Hi all, first time poster, but been on the east side for a few years. 

I was wondering what everyone's experience is with the accuracy of the charlottenc.gov projects page timelines? I'm specifically curious about the Kilborne Streetscape Project, as I live near there. It says utility relocation work to start early 2021, with construction to start mid 2021 (most recent update November 2020). 

Thoughts? I haven't seen much (any?) work being done on Kilborne except some major tree cut back, but that could just be Duke cleaning up the power lines. 

Welcome EastGuy. I know nothing about your question but there are many knowledgeable people in this forum. I am sure you will get some good information. This place is like Christmas. Almost everyday someone leaves a present for us all.

So basically I just wanted to say "Welcome".

I own a property on Kilborne and the city acquired the right of way back in late 2019 (they are done with that phase)...not sure the hold up....I assume COVID, and lack of work done on multiple projects last year, just has them behind.

Would be an amazing opportunity to put in raised sidewalks to discourage cars running the stop sign and look out for pedestrians. 

Please and thanks??!!

After spending a whole lot more time cycling recently it has been a real eye opener to just how woefully sad it is for anyone trying to actually utilize our roads for anything other than cars.

Sidewalks, where they exist, narrow and overgrown with brush.

Unprotected bike lanes, littered with road debris and rocks/sand.

 

I know there is a lot of planning in the works, and it all takes time, but if there were to be a Big Bang program for improving the streetscape, specifically to better accommodate pedestrians and "cyclists" it would be a wonderful immediate improvement to the overall health of our neighborhoods and city overall.

Note "cyclists" in this day and age means a whole host of personal mobility options beyond just traditional bikes, but they can generally be grouped together in a similar shared need of protected (from cars) lanes that are also separate from pedestrians, ideally.
