Gastonia, Belmont, Mount Holly Mayors On Gaston County Growth, Regional Identity
Wednesday, July 21, 2021
We’re circling the region this summer, getting updates on the fates and fortunes of the towns that surround Charlotte. In addition to our regular meeting with Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles, we’ve already heard from the mayors of Huntersville, Cornelius and Davidson.
Now, we cross the Catawba River to talk with the mayors of another part of our region feeling the impact of rapid growth.
We’ll hear from the mayors of Gastonia, Belmont and Mount Holly about how they’re dealing with the change that comes with growth and about how they’re working to revitalize their downtowns, improve the quality of life for their residents and evolve, while keeping intact what their citizens like about where they live.
Walker Reid, mayor of Gastonia
Charlie Martin, mayor of Belmont
