• Summit held to create partnership between east, west Charlotte

    Updated:

    CHARLOTTE - City Council leaders are addressing the idea that east and west Charlotte are competing against each other for funding and resources.

    The areas are miles apart, but closely related in terms of challenges they face.

    District Five City Council representative John Autry wants to change the competitive atmosphere.

    He helped organize an east-west summit on Saturday, and neighbors and stakeholders from both sides came together to create a partnership.

    “The point is if you can break down the barriers that are keeping us apart, then together we're a much better force," Autry said.

    He also said it is important for the city that both sides are revitalized so they can be better contributors to the tax base.
