All this week on Morning Edition, we're hearing about the future of Charlotte. We sent our reporters to different communities in the area: Rich, poor, middle class; urban and suburban. We bring you these comments in advance of a Public Conversation WFAE will host next Tuesday, September 1, called "Charlotte: On the way to becoming...?" Today, we hear from residents of west Charlotte and Gastonia. Tell us what your thoughts are on Charlotte's future in the comment section below.
