Charlotte Talks: Downtown Development In Our Four Corners


Monday, April 29, 2019

Growth is bringing change to our entire area including the towns of Matthews, Kannapolis, Cornelius and Belmont.  We hear what’s happening in their necks of the woods this hour.

As the region grows, it isn’t just Charlotte that is changing.  Four of the area’s outer cities are undergoing a transformation and they want you to know about it.  Matthews, Kannapolis, Cornelius and Belmont have all set a priority to develop their downtowns as central hubs for their citizens. 

We hear about those efforts and some of those town’s plans for future development this hour on Charlotte Talks.
