Charlotte is changing. What else is new, right?
The city’s population is now above 800,000. Mecklenburg County’s population has doubled in the last 25 years to more than 1 million people today.
But change is about more than the growing numbers of people. Properties change hands and so does their value. Buildings get torn down.
Sometimes, the entire fabric of a neighborhood changes – and the people who lose out the most are the ones who can least afford it. Today, WFAE begins a periodic series in which we’ll visit neighborhoods going through change, big and small. Our series is called Block By Block.
