Town hall tonight: Mecklenburg's budget

Posted By on Tue, Mar 30, 2010 at 11:06 AM

Ever heard of Crossroads Charlotte? It is a non-profit centered around this question, "What course will Charlotte-Mecklenburg chart for all its residents over the next 10 years as we deal with issues of access, equity, inclusion and trust in the social, political, economic and cultural life of the community?"

With that question in mind, the group is hosting a town hall-style meeting tonight at First Presbyterian Church — and you're invited. The meeting will focus on the impact of Mecklenburg County's recent budget cuts and County Budget Director Hyong Yi will make a presentation.

The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. Click here for more information and here for a map. Come, voice your opinion.

If you're not able to attend, don't despair. The meeting will be live-Tweeted. You can follow the action as it happens by following the #XroadsCLT hashtag. (You do not need a Twitter account to do so.)

After the meeting, the Crossroads Correspondents* will post a summary at www.CrossroadsCharlotte.com. You can prepare for the meeting by reading the team's "Impact on Access" series from last week that focused on the budget cuts from the average citizen's perspective.
