To Build an Innovative Community Center at Parkwood and Pegram, Charlotte, NC sign now


There have been numerous attempts to eleviate the symptoms of blight at the intersection of Parkwood and Pegram, in the Villa Heights neighborhood of Charlotte, NC.

These include attempts by the City to purchase property in the area, and to otherwise spur development along this corridor. To date, none have succeeded and the neighborhood, despite beying wedged between other prosperous neighborhoods on an important corridor, has stagnated.


gDwell, Inc. is a North Carolina non-profit dedicated to innovation in creation of dwellings, use of energy and water, and building of community.

gDwell currently has a plan to create a community center at this location, on City-owned property. The Center will house an innovative "Business-In-A-Box" program which promotes the incubation of small businesses, educational programs, and support for building a new kind of community: not blighted, but not gentrified and supportive of new creative forces and traditional residents.

Two additional facets of the gDwell proposal are to provide guarantee of removal of the structure when a realistic development plan is ready, and to request that a Charlotte Police Department substation be located in the Center to help change the nature of the neighborhood.

Thus,

We support the implementation of the gDwell plan on the City-owned lots at the intersection of Parkwood and Pegram, Villa Heights, Charlotte, NC. We further support the use of City funding, if available, to assure success of the plan.
