CHARLOTTE, N.C. —

A series of public meetings will be held to begin developing area plans for transit stations that will be along the Lynx Blue Line Extension.

The Blue Line Extension, which is the second segment to be developed in Charlotte's rapid transit system, is comprised of an approximately 9 mile route that connects center city, University City and UNC Charlotte.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Planning Department is holding the public meetings to start developing area plans for six of the transit stations located along the Blue Line Extension light rail project.

The plans will focus on land use, transportation and community design, officials said.

There is a public kick-off meeting on Oct. 4, followed by community workshops on Oct. 18 and Nov. 1. All meetings are at 6 p.m. at Sugaw Creek Presbyterian Church.
