A Taste of Charlotte, North Carolina

did you know?

  1. Charlotte is the largest city in the U.S. state of North Carolina and the seat of Mecklenburg County. Charlotte's population was estimated by the US Census Bureau to be 709,441.

  2. The 1903 state charter required a library be opened for the disenfranchised African-American population of Charlotte. This was completed in 1905, with opening of the Brevard Street Library for Negroes, an independent library in Brooklyn, a historically black area of Charlotte, on the corner of Brevard and East Second Street (now Martin Luther King Blvd.)

  3. The Brevard Street Library was the first library for free blacks in the state of North Carolina, some sources say in the southeast. This library was closed in 1961 when the Brooklyn neighborhood in Second Ward was redeveloped, but its role as a cultural center for African-Americans in Charlotte is continued by the Beatties Ford branch, the West branch and the Belmont Center branch of the current library system, as well as by Charlotte's African-American Cultural Center.

  4. Charlotte is located in North America's humid subtropical climate zone. The city has cool winters and warm, humid summers.

  5. The African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church (AME Zion) is headquartered in Charlotte.

  6. Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts & Culture is located in Charlotte.

City of Charlotte Selects Woolpert for Streetscape Projects in Prosperity Village

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (July 21, 2016) — The city of Charlotte has contracted with Woolpert on two projects to improve the connectivity, safety and aesthetics of Prosperity Village, as part of the city’s Comprehensive Neighborhood Improvement Program (CNIP).

The first project will address the upgrade of DeArmon Road, a 0.9-mile “farm-to-market” connector between Browne and Benfield roads. DeArmon will be converted from a narrow, variable road section into a complete street, including two travel lanes, a center median, bike lanes, planter strips, landscaping, lighting and sidewalks.

The proposed complete street section is designed to improve vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian connections between Browne and Benfield roads. Additionally, the project will include a greenway crossing underneath the road for the future Clark’s Creek greenway.

“The public has expressed great interest in the future extension of the Clark’s Creek greenway north to DeArmon Road, with a pedestrian and bicycle connection into the Prosperity Village’s core activity center,” said Paul Smith, Woolpert project manager.

Woolpert also was contracted to provide planning through conceptual design services for the Craven Thomas Robert Helms Streetscape project, which is intended to provide aesthetic improvements to Prosperity Village’s core area and encourage residents to walk and bike between the north and south activity centers.

The streetscape project includes the area between Craven Thomas Road and Robert Helms Road, from Benfield to Prosperity Ridge Road, and contains three cross streets bridging Interstate 485 and six roundabouts.

It is located at the heart of the city’s Prosperity Hucks Area Plan, which city leaders have adopted to shape the character and provide for a village-like development pattern for the future of the Prosperity Village core.

“This project is a great opportunity to give Prosperity Village a true sense of place, whether you are exiting the interstate or crossing the interstate from the north village to the south village,” Smith said. “The project could potentially include monuments, gathering areas, landscape, lighting and public art.”

The project team will develop a community engagement strategy and hold multiple community meetings. The city and the Arts & Science Council have said they both support the idea of the addition of public art to the project.

“We would like this project to help instill a sense of community identity and pride for the residents in Prosperity Village,” Smith said. Woolpert plans to begin work on these projects Aug. 1.

Free, Healthy Meals This Summer!


Freedom Within Walls is a non-profit organization that services your area. Freedom Within Walls has structured a community program for children ages 2-18 to be provided daily at after-school programs with free healthy snacks and full hot suppers and daily breakfasts, hot lunches and snacks throughout the summer.

We are currently sponsoring hundreds of children each day with after-school snacks and hot dinners at no cost. Schools, Boys and Girls Clubs, YWCAs, churches, apartment complexes and community centers are among the locations who are enjoying free healthy snacks and meals through Freedom Within Walls for their students each day after-school, school days off and during the summer months.

If your after-school, summer program or vacation Bible School is still funding the snacks and meals for your students, we would like to assume that expense for you by sponsoring your program. As a result of Freedom Within Walls assuming the financial responsibility of providing your students snacks and meals, we are hoping that your program will be able to allocate funds towards new computers, books, educational enrichment, etc. for your students to enjoy. Our goal is to ensure that when school is out, every child is eating sufficiently.

If you are interested in having your students sponsored or becoming involved in our programs, please contact us at the contact information listed below. Have an amazing summer!
