Restoring the creeks that are a part of our City’s roots.

The restoration efforts at Reedy Creek are a part of Charlotte’s overall goal of protecting its vital waterways. Watch this excellent video that shows just how important these efforts are in Charlotte, also known as “The City of Creeks”.

UNC Charlotte, UNC Charlotte Urban Institute & UNC Charlotte College of Arts + Architecture have partnered with organizations and artists from across Mecklenburg County to raise awareness of creeks, watersheds, water quality, and the importance of protecting these vital waterways.

We continue to make progress in the design phase

This month, we walked the Reedy Creek project site with representatives from state and federal regulatory agencies. The purpose of this walk was to review the current conditions of the site and preview the design approach.

30% concept plans are complete

We are excited to announce that 30% concept plans are complete. The design team continues to develop a strong concept that will restore the streams to their natural shape, flow, and location in the landscape. Here is a glimpse at the design approach:
