We are kicking off the year with a new experience! In 2017, The Dodd Studio was a part of the Eastway Drive Streetscape and Pedestrian Improvement Study, a project with the City of Charlotte’s Comprehensive Neighborhood Improvement Program (CNIP). Traditionally, public feedback is gathered through in-person meetings in the community. This time, the City decided to gather feedback in a different way. From now until February 19, the public can view an online presentation and provide direct feedback through the City’s website about the study’s recommendations.
As a busy 2017 is winding down, The Dodd Studio wants to extend its many thanks for a great year. We truly enjoy what we do – from the project themselves to the people and communities we work with. We look forward to many exciting opportunities in 2018 and hope that you all have a wonderful holiday season
After 6 years, needed to update the mugshots…..getting older around here.
Great news for park enthusiasts – the Springs Family recently transferred ownership of Walter Elisha Park to the Town of Fort Mill. Once the site of a Springs textile mill, the 14-acre park is a treasured green space for residents and visitors with a walking path, playground and home to the South Carolina Strawberry Festival. In addition to now owning the park, the Town also announced proposed park improvements. The Dodd Studio partnered with the Town to develop a master plan highlighting the enhancements, which includes permanent restrooms, an amphitheater and a widened walking path. Further details forthcoming.
The Dodd Studio is pleased to announce that the City of Shelby’s City Pavilion has been awarded the 2016 Best Outdoor Space Improvement from the North Carolina Main Streets Center. This 8,500 square-foot covered, open-air structure was completed in 2015 and is home to the vibrant Foothills Farmers’ Market while also serving as a new, unique community event space. This project demonstrates the power of collaboration and has served as a catalytic investment in an under-developed area of Uptown Shelby. The Dodd Studio is proud member of the team that helped turn the City of Shelby’s vision into a successful reality.
