At 7:00p on Tuesday, July 28th, the Third Ward Neighborhood Association will host mayoral candidates and at-large city council members Anthony Foxx and John Lassiter! The Gateway Village YMCA (map) will be our generous host. As always, free parking will be available in the paved lot at 950 West Trade Street (The entry code is 950#). Stay tuned to third-ward.org for more details as they become available.
Because of the significance of the event, First Ward and Fourth Ward residents also will be invited to join us. Third Ward residents will want to arrive early, not only to secure a seat but to participate in another democratic process. Mecklenburg County Park & Recreation has authorized the creation of three design options for the northwest corner of Romare Bearden Park – the entrance that will serve most Third Ward residents – with the final selection to be chosen by neighborhood residents’ votes. Romare Bearden was a Third Ward native, making this a unique opportunity to honor his provenance. Review the three design options here.
See you on the 28th!
