What is Stroll and Roll Plaza Midwood?
A campaign led by residents in Plaza Midwood, and sponsored by the Plaza Midwood Neighborhood Association (PMNA) and Sustain Charlotte, urging City Council to improve pedestrian and bicycling safety by implementing a complete street design within three specific target areas on The Plaza and Central Ave. Find out more and sign the petition at www.change.org.
Also, be sure to follow the Stroll & Roll Plaza Midwood Facebook Page where you can get the latest updates on progress of the items requested in the petition, as well as learn more about the latest innovations in pedestrian and bike-friendly street design, and find out about related events and group rides happening in the Charlotte area.
Because of all the community support and positive results of the protected bike lane demo, CDOT has approved The Plaza Street Conversion project. The design is currently in progress and they are targeting the construction to be completed in 2019. Follow the CDOT project page for the latest updates! You can sign up for notifications directly from CDOT via the project page.
10/26/18 – CDOT has published Charlotte’s first ever Bike Network Map and they want your feedback. It is currently focused on the area around the Blue Line, which includes the Plaza Midwood area. We are very excited that they have included a separated bike lane on Central Ave, which is part of our petition request. This is still just a recommendation and they need your feedback to help lock this into their overall plan. Please go to the interactive map and provide comments that you agree with and would love to see the bike path on Central!
