I’m no urban planner.
Although I spent about seven years covering real estate and can throw around terms like “plats” and “servitudes” like nobody’s business, I don’t know the first thing about good planning.
Having said that, here’s what I think it would be nice for Mecklenburg County to have: Light-rail service running to the northern end, which is where I live, as well as out to the southern, eastern and western ends.
But my transit dreams don’t seem likely to come true anytime soon. While there’s a 2030 transit plan for the Charlotte area — a plan that calls (hooray!) for the North Corridor Commuter Rail Project, which would service north Mecklenburg — no one knows from where funding for all the projects will ultimately come.
