Welcome to the website serving the Southern Branch members of the North Carolina Section. Our branch includes over 800 members encompassing the greater metropolitan area of Charlotte. We love having visitors and look forward to meeting you and our new members at our future branch meetings.
Spring Stream Clean-up
We are looking for volunteers for our Spring Stream Clean-Up event on Saturday, April 5.
ASCE Southern Branch has adopted a portion of Little Sugar Creek between East Boulevard (Freedom Park) and E. Morehead Street. This also includes the adjacent greenway.
Since this is a stream clean-up, please be prepared to actually get into the creek. Don’t fear - you shouldn't get wet! We will provide hip waders and all other items, including gloves, trash bags, and litter grabbers. Not everyone needs to get into the water as the greenway needs clean-up as well.
This is a great experience and you will be helping keep our streams and greenways clean and beautiful for everyone to enjoy. Children are welcome to join, too, with an accompanying adult.
Date: Saturday, April 5, 2014
Start Time: 9 am
Duration: About 2 hours
Meeting Location: Freedom Park
Enter Freedom Park from East Boulevard. We will be meeting at the first parking area on the right.
If you’d like to volunteer, please contact
April Branch Meeting - TBA

March 2014: "BB&T Ballpark - Home of the Charlotte Knights - Lessons Learned in the Urban Environment"
Speaker: Scott Mingonet, RLA, AICP, Kimley-Horn & Associates, Inc.
BB&T Ballpark will be the new home of the Charlotte Knights minor league baseball team after spending the last 20+ years in Ft. Mill, South Carolina, and will have a capacity of 10,000. The new stadium will host events throughout the year in addition to Knights baseball games. Kimley-Horn & Associates provided site civil and infrastructure design services for the new stadium. The presentation focused on the challenges of designing and constructing a stadium within the urban core, including challenges relating to infrastructure improvements, land planning and minimizing impacts to adjacent property owners, while providing a state of the art venue that seamlessly fits into the urban center of Charlotte.
