PlanCharlotte Workshops Share Neighborhood Stories
Every neighborhood has a story, but often the people who live there don't know what they are or where to find them. Does it have a special landmark that ought to be preserved? What about an interesting history? Maybe it has environmental treasures or distinctive architectural features.
At two free, public workshops, Charlotte residents can get help learning how to find out those answers. On Tuesday, March 3, and Saturday, March 7, experts will show residents how to become savvy neighborhood sleuths and discover more about the places where they live.
The March 3 workshop will be from 6:00 - 8:00 PM at Midwood International and Cultural Center, 1817 Central Ave. The March 7 event is scheduled for 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM at Beatties Ford Road Regional Library, 2412 Beatties Ford Rd.
