Mega-Regions: Piedmont Atlantic Region
Growth and development is a constant issue in Charlotte but it's far larger than most people realize. Experts say there is a mega-region emerging that stretches from Birmingham Alabama to Richmond Virginia and Charlotte is at the core of this area of vast growth. Mayor Pat McCrory is teaming up with Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin to explore the challenges and opportunities of being a part of a mega-region. McCrory and a panel of experts join us to discuss the mega-region in our midst.
Guests
Pat McCrory - Mayor of Charlotte
Tim Gulden - Co-Author of The Rise of the Mega-Region

Dr. Catherine Ross - Professor and Director of Center for Quality Growth and Regional Development at Georgia Tech
