CNIP projects are meant to be transformative in nature, coordinating investments in the economic activity center and their surrounding neighborhoods to create more complete, consistent and attractive connections and spaces within the public realm.

The information presented in this document is for the SouthPark CNIP Proposed Project Workshop on January 23, 2018. It is intended to summarize the SouthPark CNIP team’s thoughts on potential projects at this moment in time. It is not intended to be a complete summary of the projects, represent technical feasibility, or final recommendations for the area. A final project summary document will be produced following the event using input received from this workshop, other outreach activities and further City staff review.

WHY & WHAT Charlotte’s Comprehensive Neighborhood Improvement Program (CNIP) is a new approach for investing in the City’s future―one that combines the resources of several departments to leverage the City’s Community Investment Plan (CIP) bond funding with other public, quasi-public, and private partners. Its mission is to engage citizens, identify partners, program funding, and move important infrastructure projects forward. In the SouthPark CNIP area, we are working hard together—neighborhood associations, business organizations, property owners, developers, City departments and the general public—to brainstorm projects that invest in the success, value and longevity of SouthPark as it continues to evolve into a dense, walkable, mixed use activity center that is relevant for all generations. Our list of projects includes big and small investments that aim to implement a public realm vision of SouthPark that is a peopleoriented economic activity center with purposeful connections into the surrounding established neighborhoods. Now we need your help again! Today’s workshop is your opportunity to learn more about these projects and weigh in on their impact for transforming the SouthPark CNIP area. You will be asked to engage in a brief presentation, visit the themed station areas to learn more about the projects, and provide your input for the area’s top project priorities. Input received at the meeting will be used in the City’s project prioritization process, which will begin following the event. Thank you for attending this event! Your continued support for the SouthPark CNIP is greatly appreciated, and we look forward to sharing which projects we will be moving forward with at our next meeting in late March. Please leave your email address at the sign-in table so we can notify you of the meeting details as soon as they are available. Sincerely,

Fran West, Project Manager SouthPark CNIP Area [email protected] 980-240-2026 (cell)
