News About Town: Town staff has been working on a Reduced Continuous Flow Intersection design to replace the Partial Continuous Flow Intersection at John St. and Highway 51. The design was presented during Monday night’s meeting. The Board decided the designs need further consideration before an approval is made.
News Around Town: This interesting (terrifying) story starts with a drive-by shooting at a house in Matthews* and ends with Bojangles, also in Matthews. You may reconsider rideshares after reading this one. (*No one was physically harmed.)
One Good Thing: Head over to the town green (in front of Town Hall) this weekend for Matthews ArtWalk & MusicFest. The one-day event is this Saturday, September 28, from 10 am-6 pm. The event is free, and there will be family-friendly activities, live music, a mimosa bar (which is not free, but worth mentioning), and, of course, art! Proceeds from the event will benefit Greater Matthews Habitat and their mission of affordable housing for all.
