Community Workshops to Unveil Two Scenarios on the Future of NC 73
Don’t miss the unveiling of two potential scenarios for the future of NC 73. The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT), HNTB, Centralina Council of Governments (COG), as well as a steering committee comprised of city and county planners, engineers and business development leaders from Cabarrus, Lincoln and Mecklenburg Counties have been studying land use, traffic and population patterns to determine the future needs of NC 73. The NC 73 corridor extends from Lincolnton in Lincoln County to I-85 in Cabarrus County, a distance of approximately 35 miles. Community workshops designed to solicit public input and comment will begin Tuesday, November 19, 2003 in Cabarrus County at Harris Road Middle School. The second workshop will be held Wednesday, November 19, 2003 in Lincoln County at Catawba Springs Elementary School and the third workshop will be held Thursday, November 20, 2003 in Mecklenburg County at Cornelius Town Hall. The workshops will begin at 7:00 pm. These workshops are designed to give residents, property owners, business owners, developers and motorists along the NC 73 corridor the chance for hands-on input on options for the design of NC 73 and the pattern of growth on the road for the next twenty years. All community members along the NC 73 corridor are encouraged to attend the Community Workshop closest to them and come prepared to present their ideas, ask questions and openly voice their opinions regarding the future of NC 73.
