$90 Million Shortfall for Charlotte/Mecklenburg
A victory: because the county has almost no money, due to the 2008-9 economic downturn, the Central Piedmont Community College parking deck project that has been "shoved down our throats" and was/is to be built directly across the street from my house may NOT happen!
I am overjoyed, to a degree... We do not and did not need an EIGHT floor monstrosity dedicated to the dead use of space for automobiles and nothing more. President A. Zeiss of the college should apologize to the citizens of Charlotte, and especially the Elizabeth area, for his forceful attitude and arrogance; he was wrong and possibly he will walk away with his "tail between his legs."
Maybe he would be better as a shift manager at a local Food Lion grocery store...
