Group Discusses Improvements to Olympic and Other Community Facilities

(January 11, 2007) A core group of Steele Creek residents has been discussing how to draw the community together to encourage support for area schools, parks, and other facilities. The community needs to speak out to raise awareness of area needs and rally residents behind projects that will enhance the livability of Steele Creek and improve community unity.

The main focus of discussion has been the need for improved athletic facilities at Olympic High School. A report issued in 2004 showed that athletic facilities at Olympic were among the worst in Mecklenburg County. Many facilities are obsolete or missing altogether. The total estimated cost of needed improvements was $5,441,332. The school also needs community support for academic and other programs.

But other schools have needs, and the community also needs improved parks, greenways, roads, sidewalks, and other facilities. These require money, which can come from public funds or could be raised by the community.

The group is in its early stages of organization and plans to present some of its thoughts at the 2007 annual meeting of the Steele Creek Residents Association in February. If you are interested in learning more about this grass roots effort, please plan to attend the meeting or contact info@steelecreekresidents.org.
