Pedestrian & Traffic Study

The NoDa Neighborhood and Business Association (NBA) is working with our neighbors, Charlotte Department of Transportation (CDOT), and our City Council Representative to identify and prioritize the pedestrian and traffic concerns in NoDa. As part of the NoDa Board’s efforts, we have already identified many concerns and prioritized them based on neighbor feedback. We are now meeting with CDOT and City Council on a quarterly basis to address those concerns.
