STEELE CREEK NEWS
It's Steele Creek, Not Southwest Charlotte!
Community Meeting on Rebranding Effort July 13
(June 17, 2017)
From time to time things happen in Steele Creek that make the news.
Usually the news stories refer to our area as Steele Creek, but many
times they describe the location as being in southwest Charlotte, or even
south Charlotte. Neither is correct. We are Steele Creek!
Southwest Charlotte could be any place south and west of uptown.
It's just a direction. South Charlotte includes area east of I-77
that have little in common with Steele Creek. Those names reflect a
tendency by the media to lump Steele Creek in with other areas and
not recognize it for the unique area that it is.
Yellow Duck Marketing is
planning a branding campaign for Steele Creek that will promote the
name Steele Creek over others, such as southwest Charlotte or South
Charlotte. Please join them and provide local feedback on a new logo
concept and the rebranding of Steele Creek:
