Charlotte needs to find new ways to increase its tax base. In the past, annexation provided low-hanging fruit. But there's almost no more space to annex. Today, South Charlotte property taxes provide half the city’s revenue. Policymakers have presented initiatives and projects, such as affordable housing and the street car, but what do neighborhood residents want? Panelists and audience members will talk about balancing the use of taxpayer money in different neighborhoods, the most effective ways to invest in older neighborhoods, and if residents have a voice in the City’s neighborhood development plans.
