Web-based Quality of Life Explorer Released

The City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County recently released the updated Charlotte-Mecklenburg Quality of Life Explorer, an interactive online tool that can be used to explore social, housing, economic, environmental and safety conditions in neighborhoods across Charlotte-Mecklenburg.

The Quality of Life Explorer – which was created in partnership with UNC Charlotte and the towns of Cornelius, Davidson, Huntersville, Matthews, Mint Hill and Pineville – includes updated data and a redesigned dashboard, providing seamless access to information and resources.

The Quality of Life Explorer displays maps, trend charts and data tables and provides summary reports for more than 460 neighborhood profile areas across the county. There are also links that provide more information about each variable, as well as resources to take action on the issues that are important to users. While a complete update is typically released every two years, periodic updates, as well as links to neighborhood stories and data analysis, will be released over the coming year.

Charlotte 49ers FBS Debut on National Television

The Charlotte 49ers, which will make the move to the FBS as a member of Conference USA this fall, will have the season-opener at Georgia State broadcast on ESPNU. The game is slated for Friday, Sept. 4 at 3:30 PM.

"This is another great step for our program," said 49ers head coach Brad Lambert. "We’re excited to have our first game in the FBS on national television. This works out great for Niner Nation - for those who will make the trip to Atlanta and those who will catch us on ESPNU."

The team also has three home games selected as part of the preliminary Conference USA Television package. The 49ers will host Temple, Oct. 2 at 7:00 PM in a non-conference game televised by CBS Sports Network. Two conference games: vs. Marshall, Oct. 31 and vs. UTSA, Nov. 14 will be televised on a to-be-determined FOX network. Additional television broadcasts, including those produced by C-USA partner American Sports Network (ASN) and by Charlotte 49ers local TV partner WCCB, will be released over the next two months.
