This Sunday, May 1st, Charlotte will participate in a nationwide trend that aspires to foster community building through a simple idea – close streets to cars, and open them up to people. Open Streets 704 will see a three mile stretch of roads across several neighborhoods transform into corridors of recreation, public health, and active transportation. This novel ideas has taken place in over 100 cities across the United States, and this Sunday from noon to 4pm, the citizens of Charlotte will enjoy the connectivity of our streets as well.
