Record #:
The linear park, initiated by the Mecklenburg County Greenway Master Plan, currently covers 47 miles of trails and wildlife habitat. Motives to stretch mileage to 95 miles by 2030 include younger workforce segments wanting connectivity and businesses wanting to build around the greenway. Incentives include a positive impact on individuals’ health and the metro’s economic health. Statistics attesting the impact already made include a 600% population growth since 1998 and 5.1 million square feet of office space planned or under construction in central Charlotte.
