Matthew Hassey started this petition to County Commissioners of Mecklenburg County NC

The Historic Morgan School used to be the heart of the Cherry Community. It was built in 1925 to serve and educate the children of this beautiful community.. 

For years now, it has sat crumbling, disregarded and unused. No longer occupied, no longer serving the community. Now we have an opportunity to bring back the heart of the Cherry Community and we need your support! 

Arts+ would like to lease out the historic Morgan School. For more than 50 years, Arts+ has served the Charlotte community with the goal of making outstanding arts education accessible to students of all backgrounds and socioeconomic levels. You can read more about them here; https://www.artsplus.org/about-us/history 

This is an incredible opportunity for the residents of Cherry to have the heart of the neighborhood, The Morgan School, repaired, occupied and put to use serving our community. 

On Tuesday, April 6th at 6:00 PM, the Mecklenburg-County Board of County Commissioners will be convening for their bi-monthly meeting, wherein they will be asked to decline their statutory Right of First Refusal by CMS – allowing CMS and Arts+ to enter into a 9 year, 11 month lease. 

Let the County Commissioners know that you support them declining their statutory Right of First Refusal. Help bring the heart of the Cherry Neighborhood back to life!
