Alysia Osborne went first Tuesday with a presentation on the plans for the Historic West End off the Beatties Ford Road corridor.
Osborne was named last fall to a new position within Charlotte Center City Partners to direct the Northwest Charlotte district. She had previously worked in the city-county Planning Department.
Using the slides below, Osborne discussed the convening role undertaken by Center City Partners in the Historic West End. She promised that there would be no new studies. But she also noted that, with big problems to tackle and only a small pot of money to spend so far, the effort is focused on strengthening neighborhoods, coordinating existing programs and listening to residents about the future of the corridor.
Legislative leaders, two senators and five representatives, answered questions posed by Forum participants. Sen. Joel Ford handed out two items for participants: his summary of what the recent legislative session did and did not do; and a list of contact information for Mecklenburg legislators.
Below is a tape of the live broadcast from the Ivory Baker Recreation Center. Below the video are Osborne’s PowerPoint slides, which may be downloaded as a PDF here.
