* “State of the Environment in Charlotte”, Jan 25th at 7:00 PM

“Charlotte will become a national leader in environmental and energy sustainability, preserving our natural resources while balancing growth with sound fiscal policy.”

~ 2012 Environment Strategic Focus Area Plan

Charlotte has many environmental and sustainability challenges facing us – our air, our water, our traffic, our development and more. With the development of the City Strategic Focus Area Plans we’ve begun to address a number of these areas by setting benchmarks and goals. Come join us to hear John Autry, the new City Environment Committee Chair, review the “State of the Environment in Charlotte” and discuss issues we need to address this year. This will be an excellent opportunity to provide feedback and learn how we can work with our elected officials and City Staff to create a clean, greener and more sustainable Charlotte.

Special Note: Environment Committee Vice Chair Claire Fallon and Committee member Beth Pickering will also be attending the meeting!
