Little Sugar Creek Stream and floodplain restoration near uptown Finishing touches Newly restored, Little Sugar Creek is looking good from 7th Street to Morehead. Native plants added to the banks as part of the floodplain restoration are thriving in the spring sunshine. A Great Blue Heron (nicknamed “Big Blue”) has claimed the section near Charlottetowne Avenue as his private kingdom. And he apparently is finding plenty of fish in the sparkling stream. This month, Mecklenburg Park and Recreation is finishing the greenway trail from Charlottetowne Avenue upstream to CPCC. The newest section of stream and greenway work will be dedicated at a public event in April. And it celebrates the transformation of this section of Little Sugar Creek from a neglected eyesore to a community treasure. More at: stormwater.charmeck.org Go to Projects, then Little Sugar Creek.
