Let’s start the new year talking about health and active recreation. Opportunities are thriving around trails and active connectivity. From connecting us across the region, to within neighborhoods, trails take advantage of and leverages infrastructure that supports active ways of getting around. This program will discuss the opportunities, priorities, and gaps in the Cross Charlotte Trail (XCLT), the SouthPark Cultural Loop (“The Loop”), Tobe Creek Greenway and trail oriented development (such as Centene).
