Elizabeth Neighborhood!

Elizabeth Community Award For Excellence

Congratulations, Elizabeth! Your new Small Area Plan won an “Award  for Excellence” from the American Planning Association, one of two awarded nationwide. Jurors from across the U.S. called the ESAP a “thorough analysis of the opportunities, challenges, goals, and vision for the community… [that] provides succinct direction for land use, transportation, community design, infrastructure and public facilities, and environmental policies… a stakeholder group was integral…

“Thanks to the residents and city/county staffers who gave countless hours to this project and to Andy Misiaveg (Historic Elizabeth Neighborhood Foundation) and Alan Goodwin (Charlotte/Mecklenburg Planning Department) for their leadership.

Elizabeth Recycles Day
Saturday, May 17th, 9am to 12pm
Upper Independence Park (near the rose garden)

This year’s 7th annual Elizabeth Recycles Day will be in the parking lot at Independence Park’s Rose Garden on Park Drive. Drop off old paint, household cleaners, compact fluorescents, batteries, electronic equipment (computers, TVs, cell phones, etc.), clothes hangers, ink cartridges, eye glasses, craft supplies, corks, hard plastic bottle caps, and magazines, and we’ll make sure it’s recycled or reused. We also encourage the “scavengers” in all of you to come take whatever others have dropped off. It’s a lot of fun and we are looking for volunteers and those with pick ups to bring items to the City’s recycling center.
To volunteer, please contact Kris Solow at
(704) 806-4456 or ksolow@carolina.rr.com
