Open Streets 704 – Volunteering Opportunity


Location: 3-mile route from North Davidson Street (NoDa area) through Uptown (Map)

Date: Sunday May 1, 2016

Volunteer Shifts: 11am to 4pm

Open Streets 704 is a series of four Charlotte events made possible by a grant from the Knight Foundation. Open Streets 704 will literally open a length of city streets for an afternoon just for people! Open Streets 704 aims to build a better, healthier, connected community by encouraging Charlotte and Mecklenburg area residents to walk, bicycle, and experience the city together in a way that’s just not possible in a car.

The 3-mile route from North Davidson Street (NoDa area), through uptown, to Memorial Stadium near CPCC will be wide-open from 12pm – 4pm on May 1, 2016. The route is about 3.2 miles and goes from 36th and Davidson, crosses over to Caldwell and ends up at Memorial Stadium. Open Streets 704 is planning four (4) Featured Zones along the route. Each zone will have specific locations for coordinated or user-generated activities. Family, Arts, Fitness and Wellness and the Green Zone!

We’ll need Volunteers to help with Set Up, Take Down, Evaluations, Water Stations and to help with the Activity Stations. We’ll also need folks to assist CMPD in managing traffic for the event. These volunteers will be positioned at key points along the route, and will help direct any cars to CMPD officers stationed at each intersection. Most of the Volunteer Shifts are between 11am and 4pm but a couple want to bring in Volunteers as early as 10:30am. We’d like to have Volunteers aged 16 and up since there will be some liability issues but the event itself is for All Ages!!
