City launches website about uptown events

The city of Charlotte has launched a new website to provide information about large-scale events uptown. The “Uptown Events” site has up-to-date information on traffic and safety issues for all of the center city’s “extraordinary events” -- a declaration by the city manager that gives police more power and prohibits some items.

This year’s Speed Street, which begins next week, is an example.

City officials said the idea for the website came after they used a similar site to provide information about the Democratic National Convention.

To sign up to receive updates on uptown events via email or text visit the site at UptownEvents.CharlotteNC.gov.
