The Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization (CRTPO) is preparing a Bicycle Suitability Map for the Iredell, Mecklenburg, and Union County planning area. A bicycle suitability map uses a variety of data and local knowledge to determine a suitability rating for regional roadways. Cyclists use this map to help identify preferred routes which may best match the user’s comfort level cycling on local roads, or to identify which roads are best to avoid.
A series of drop-in style open houses will be held February 29th – March 2nd in multiple locations across the planning area. Click here to view a flier with specific dates, times, and locations of the meetings. The goal of these open houses is to identify meaningful destinations, routes, and barriers throughout the region.
Click here to provide comments and feedback regarding potential routes on an on-line map.

The Village of Marvin ranks in second place in the recent "Best Cities for Young Families in North Carolina" listing done by the website NerdWallet (click here for the in depth story). The analysis looked at home affordability, prosperity and growth, quality of education and family friendliness. The Town of Waxhaw was listed as the top town.
Here's what they had to say about Marvin:
The Irish playwright Sean O’Casey once wrote: “Money does not make you happy, but it quiets the nerves.” While we aren’t claiming that residents of Marvin are unhappy (in fact, North Carolina is one of the happiest states in the country), this Charlotte suburb is actually the most expensive town not only in the top 10, but also in all of the places we analyzed. However, Marvin offers a nearly unmatched package for the price. Schools are top notch — it is one of three places in our top 10 with a perfect 10 score from GreatSchools, and Marvin’s three public high schools rank among the top 15 in the entire state. Additionally, family incomes have grown nearly 85% since 1999, the largest gain in the top 10. And 72% of family households in the village have at least one child under 18, the highest proportion in the entire state.
