For the past four months, city leaders, residents and business owners have been talking about what kinds of infrastructure improvements they'd like to see in Charlotte's SouthPark area. Ideas include updating symphony park to become more of a town square and adding greenways connecting to the cross-Charlotte trail.

On Tuesday, city officials and elected leaders will host a day-long drop-in session to explain and get feedback about these potential projects. The meeting is at Morrison Regional Library from 11 am to 7 pm, with formal presentations at noon and 5:30.

Council member Tariq Scott Bokhari represents the area and is encouraging residents to attend. "Over the past 4 months, many parties have been working to identify and define potential projects for funding. We will look back on SouthPark's evolution, and discuss big ideas for what the community identity and vision could look like 15-20 years from now based on the decisions we make today," he said in an email. 

For those unable to attend, an online version of the meeting and feedback session will posted on the website below from Jan. 24-31.
