Group Meets to Discuss Improvements to Olympic and Other Community Facilities

(December 16, 2006) About a dozen Steele Creek residents met last week to discuss how to draw the community together to encourage support for area schools, parks, and other facilities. The community needs to speak out to raise awareness of area needs and rally residents behind projects that will enhance the livability of Steele Creek

The main focus of discussion was the need for improved athletic facilities at Olympic High School. A report issues in 2004 showed that athletic facilities at Olympic were among the worst in Mecklenburg County. Many facilities are obsolete or missing altogether. The total estimated cost of needed improvements was $5,441,332.

But other schools have needs, and the community also needs improved parks, greenways, and other facilities. These require money, which can come from the city or county or could be raised by the community.

The group is in its early stages of organization and plans to meet again on January 11. If you are interested in learning more about this grass roots effort and its next meeting, contact info@steelecreekresidents.org.
