Bully Pulpit

Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

UNC Charlotte proposes plan for shops, more near campus

CHARLOTTE (Winston-Salem Journal) - Officials at UNC Charlotte want to build a small village of shops and amenities to give its campus a college-town feel.

The university is considering using some of its land to build shops, a hotel or a conference center, similar to Franklin Street at UNC Chapel Hill.

The school has wanted to have a place within walking distance where students, faculty and staff could go to shop or eat in addition to the nearby Shoppes at University Place, which has about 80 restaurants and stores.

Though there aren’t any firm plans for the project, school officials have included it on a six-year list of proposed construction through 2012. No state money would be used for the project, which would cost $150 million, the school said.
