Why are you stuck on grass being the only thing that could possibly ever live?

We are talking about a parklet that is being built next to a hotel that is currently under construction on private property, right? Or must we switch to discussing your political agenda?

why not grow food for one of many possible ways that would be a hell of a lot better than putting more fake poisons into the world?

Just searching for "fruit bearing trees in city" -- I picked 3 links, in no particular order, from the results:

https://land8.com/5-reasons-why-planting-fruit-trees-along-sidewalks-is-a-terrible-idea/

http://www.earthisland.org/journal/index.php/elist/eListRead/local_laws_ban_front_yard_food_gardens/

https://www.quora.com/Why-dont-cities-plant-fruit-bearing-trees-thus-solving-world-hunger-for-the-homeless

Just because you think it's going to be the greatest thing ever, doesn't mean it's going to survive or be sustainable (manageable), and most certainly does not mean the local gov't will approve of it (as the second link points out).

Now that I'm a homeowner I love weed yards

My front lawn on the street is grass.  My house is in the middle of 2+ acres of woods and all the green around my house is moss.  Once the weeds and grass are dead, it thrives mostly on rainfall.  Never needs mowing.  Not everybody loves it (not as pretty as a perfect green lawn) but it's maintenance free and green all year long.  Highly recommend!

Well since apparently everything is bad for the environment, I vote we ban grass and synthetic grass from Charlotte! We can enlist the fire department to torch the yards of any lawn that is mowed or isn’t 80% kudzu. (Sorry, recently reread Fahrenheit 451 haha)

Any idea of what kind of retail, if any, will be included?  I'm sure they'll have the typical hotel bar/restaurant but looking at the plan shows a possible retail space fronting S Church Street, any word on this?

I thought I recall them saying a French Bakery when this was announced and then a rooftop bar/restaurant

Why are there red flags on a power line?

So that workers see it better and do not hit it.

Ah, makes sense. Normally I've seen the orange signs that say "OVERHEAD POWER LINES," not actual red flags on the line itself.
