It's the February edition of "Mike and the Mayor," we catch up on City Council’s focus on transit and transportation, the continued concentration on strategies to reduce violence and the city filing to rezone the old Eastland Mall site for Major League Soccer. And we hear the mayor's take on opportunity zones.
Vi Lyles joins the program to talk about President Trump’s recent visit to Charlotte’s Central Piedmont Community College where he spoke at an “opportunity now” summit at the campus. His visit was meant to put a spotlight on Charlotte’s 17 opportunity zones.
We’ll talk about Lyles’ and City Council’s focus on transit and transportation, as well as the continued focus on strategies to reduce violence in the Queen City.
And Charlotte has filed plans for the old Eastland Mall site for use as the new headquarters for MLS in Charlotte. We’ll go over the details.
Mike Collins will ask about those topics and more as we welcome Vi Lyles for "Mike and the Mayor" on "Charlotte Talks."
Vi Lyles, mayor of Charlotte
