Annual SPPACE BBQ with the Candidates

2011 SPPACE BBQ will be held on Thursday, October 6th at 5:00 pm at The Palmer Building (2601 E. 7th St.).

Tickets are $30 each and it is a great opportunity to hear some great bluegrass music, eat some tasty BBQ, drink some cold beer (we’ll also have iced tea and lemonade), and mix and mingle with their peers and the candidates.  The SPPACE BBQ provides an opportunity for our members to meet the 2011 Charlotte Mayoral and City Council, CMS School Board, and outlying Towns’ Mayoral and Town Board candidates. 

To get your tickets, you can purchase them from a NAIOP Board Member, at the NAIOP office, or by credit card( with your ticket held at the door. Remember only cash, personal checks, or personal credit cards can be accepted.

The money raised from the ticket sales goes towards paying for the BBQ expenses and whatever funds are left are used to help elect qualified candidates who support continued economic growth and the interests of the real estate and building industry.

Call to Action!
Encourage City Council to Approve PCCO Changes

On August 22, the City Council’s Environment Committee began debate on a proposed package of changes to the Post Construction Controls Ordinance (PCCO). These changes would remove the natural area requirements and expand a mitigation fee option to all redevelopment sites in the city on a 2-year trial basis. REBIC supports the changes, but Council is getting a tremendous amount of opposition from tree advocates and the environmental lobby. The committee will take up the proposal again at its next meeting on September 26, and is expected to take a vote at that time.
In the new few weeks, our industry needs to let Council know how important these changes are to economic development and job growth. Please click HERE to review the proposed changes, and then use the attached letter (Word document) to make your voice heard on this critical issue! If you have any questions, please feel free to call Joe Padilla at REBIC, (704) 940-3174.
The attached letter is provided for your use in e-mailing members of the City Council Environment Committee on the proposed changes to the PCCO. Please feel free to add any personal remarks or examples you may have before sending.
The members of the Environment Committee are:
· Councilman Edwin Peacock (Chair):
· Councilwoman Nancy Carter (Vice Chair): 
· Councilman David Howard: 
· Councilman Andy Dulin: 
· Councilman Jason Burgess:
