On Election Day, voters in Charlotte and Greensboro voted for more than elected officials – they voted to invest in their local communities and make them healthier places to live, work, and play.
Charlotte voters overwhelmingly voted to support a transportation bond that would invest $148.44 million for improving local transportation infrastructure. Many of those projects will include creating sidewalks, bike lanes, and greenways so it is easier to be active in different Charlotte neighborhoods.
In Greensboro, voters passed to invest $28 million in improved transportation around the city, with 73 percent of voters supporting the bond. This bond includes new sidewalks and bike lanes and other transportation investments. Thank you to the You’re the Cure advocates who supported the bonds and encouraged others to vote in support. The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association support efforts to invest in the health of our communities. Let’s continue to promote making the healthy choice the easy choice!
