Greenways for Mecklenburg and several area neighborhoods are teaming up in an effort to push for expanded greenways in the county, including nearby Briar Creek.
To help promote these plans, we've scheduled a community walk of the proposed Briar Creek greenway site on Sunday, April 22 — Earth Day! — beginning at 2 p.m. at Delish Charlotte, the new deli and bottle shop soon to open on Central Avenue.
Currently this space isn't set to begin PLANNING until 2023, but we want to see that timetable greatly expedited, and we hope this tour will get neighbors excited about the project. Our hope is that neighbors can get an idea of what the scope of the plan would be and can let county commission know how important this is to our neighborhood.
Delish is providing some delicious baked goods for all attendees, and we'll also have some coffee and drinks, plus a great raffle prize.
The walk should take about an hour and should be largely accessible to anyone in attendance. However, we stress that this area HAS NOT YET BEEN RENOVATED so it may not be advisable for young children, small animals or anyone with physical limitations.
We'll have more updates here closer to the event, but we hope you'll join us for a look into the future of a connected greenway system that includes Plaza Midwood.
