City Bulletin

Entries for June 2016








The City of Statesville's concentrated efforts to develop a long range transportation plan has reached its most critical point - the need for the public's participation.

A special community workshop has been set for Thursday, June 2 to allow citizens, business owners, outdoor enthusiasts, developers and anyone interested in the future of transportation in Statesville to let their ideas, likes, dislikes and priorities be known.

The drop-in session will be held at the Statesville Civic Center from 5:30-7:30 p.m. and will be lead by City staff and representatives from Kimley-Horn, the engineering design firm hired by the City to oversee this transportation planning project.  There will be six stations for participants to visit where they will not only learn about the transportation study and Statesville's unique issues, but will be asked to share their own visions, help prioritize projects and critique the current traffic situation.  There will be maps, hand-outs and lots of opportunity to ask questions and provide input.

For more information on the transportation plan and the June 2 meeting, please contact Sherry Ashley, Statesville City Assistant Planning Director, at 704-878-3539 or by email.
