YOU CAN TELL THE WHOLE HISTORY OF MECKLENBURG COUNTY JUST BY FOLLOWING THE CREEK.
— BETH POOVEY, DIRECTOR OF GREENWAYS, PARKS + OPEN SPACE
Custom-Designed for the Community
With the public involvement process during the master planning phase, LandDesign held multiple stakeholder interviews and community open houses in different geographical locations along the corridor, and incorporated this feedback into the chosen alignment and master plan recommendations.
Diverse Palette of Materials
LandDesign worked side by side with public and private developers to reverse the mindset of the creek as a ‘back-door,’ so that new developments would orient to the greenway.
Uncovering the Creek
In 2002 the concrete cap was removed and stream enhancements began. With the replanting of native plant life and the creek’s banks restored, wildlife began to return and the community finally embraced the beauty of the natural environment.
