Breakfast Club Merges with SCP The Ballantyne Breakfast Club (BBC) will now serve as the community outreach arm of SCP, keeping those who live and work here informed on subjects of interest. The club's website is now located at the SCP website: southcharlottepartners.org. To receive notices of future activities or learn more about past events and advocacy efforts, visit BBC's page on this site and/or subscribe to the BBC email list. The club generally meets about six times a year. S C P S H A R E S Transportation Summit Regional Event March 25, Other Updates By Nan Bauroth A dequate transportation and infrastructure are two of the most pressing issues affecting growing south Charlotte. To address these concerns, South Charlotte Partners (SCP) will present an interstate Regional Transportation Summit on Monday, March 25, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at The Ballantyne, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Charlotte. The summit will bring together federal, state and municipal stakeholders to discuss how best to address current and future transportation needs. Given that much of the increased traffic volume stems from economic development along the state border, confirmed presenters include U.S. Rep. Ralph Norman, serving South Carolina's 5th Congressional District, and U.S. Rep. Alma Adams, serving North Carolina's 12th Congressional District. Others confirmed include Pineville Mayor Jack Edwards, N.C. Transportation Secretary James Trogdon, N.C. Board of Transportation Division 10 Member Sam Bowles, Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization Secretary Bob Cook, Rock Hill-Fort Mill Area Transportation Study Director David Hooper and Charlotte Department of Transportation Director Liz Babson. Also attending are other elected officials as well as economic development representatives from Charlotte and surrounding counties. Atrium Health is a major sponsor of the event, along with other businesses and organizations. A limited number of individual tickets are available for $100 each. Registration/sponsorship info: southcharlottepartners.org/events.

Presentations from the meeting are available at southcharlottepartners.org.
