Advocacy

While less than two years old, MoRA has assumed the role of advocate for the Monroe Road area, an area that had been overlooked for some time. Charlotte’s growth, and the opportunities and challenges that come with this growth, make it essential that we have a seat at the table whether it is for transportation, roads, the Silver Line, investments in our schools, public safety or proposed development and zoning issues.

Over the past year, MoRA has held and been a part of numerous community meetings addressing planning, transportation, and education issues impacting the Monroe Road area. These meetings have been attended by key public officials, giving MoRA visibility as well as opportunities to voice area concerns and priorities.

MoRA and its land use committee led by Jack Miller and James Scanlon have worked on major rezonings impacting the area, working with Selwyn Property Group to evolve key elements of their development plans.
