Steele Creek Residents Association Annual Meeting is February 22

(January 19, 2007) The 2007 Annual Meeting of the Steele Creek Residents Association will be on Thursday February 22 at 7:00 pm at the Olympic High School auditorium (4301 Sandy Porter Road).

Featured presentations:

Fire Safety and Emergency Response

John Rudisill, Senior Fire and Life Safety Educator of Charlotte Mecklenburg Fire Department, will discuss fire safety.


Due to a major annexation by Charlotte into Steele Creek in 2005, the city has built new Fire Station # 37 on York Road near Shopton Road West. Staff at Temporary Station # 37 on Sledge Road will move to the new station soon, and the temporary station will become Temporary Station # 38. Future Fire Station #38 will be built on Shopton Road West at Withers Cove and will have access to Lake Wylie.

The Charlotte Fire Department has been increasing its presence in Steele Creek and along with the Steele Creek Volunteer Fire Department, which serves the unincorporated areas, has been working to minimize the risk of fire and other hazards to area citizens.

Improving Facilities at Olympic High School  

Charles Beatty and Craig Bollinger of Olympic High School Capital Improvement Committee will discuss a new initiative to draw the community together to encourage support for area schools, parks, and other facilities. The main focus of discussion has been the need for improved athletic facilities at Olympic High School, which are inferior to those of most other high schools in Mecklenburg County.

The new committee has begun partnering with Olympic principals, staff, and students to identify a vision for Olympic and hopes to develop a plan to achieve that vision.

Many community supporters believe that Olympic High School has been neglected by the school system, Several expressed their concerns at a community meeting on capital needs for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools on December 21 that were reported in the Lake Wylie Pilot: Steele Creek feels passed over by CMS (1/2/07) By John Marks. 

Community Trail

Karl Froelich of the Steele Creek Community Trail Committee will give an update on efforts to develop a trail network in Steele Creek. The committee has lined up land easement donations along Steele Creek and Walkers Branch for greenway trails and has been working with Mecklenburg County to execute the transfers.
