Board Bulletin
March 7, 2014
Public Information Changes
As part of my commitment to improve communication with the Board, I have made several changes to the County's public information function.
Effective immediately, the Public Information Department that was part of the Business Support Services Agency will report directly to Deputy County Manager/Chief of Staff Chris Peek. I want a closer connection to our public information team, and I believe this is an important first step to accomplish that goal.
In addition, I have also asked public information to develop and implement a process to provide me regular media briefings regarding developing stories and inquiries related to Mecklenburg County. This will help improve my ability to inform you about potential public and/or media interest in County programs and services.
I believe these changes and others to come will immediately create a more proactive public information strategy, and help minimize the need to be reactive to stories and questions after the fact.
If you have any questions about these changes, please contact Deputy County Manager/Chief of Staff, Chris Peek.
Juvenile Crime Prevention Council (JCPC) Request for Proposals
The Mecklenburg County Juvenile Crime Prevention Council (JCPC) is seeking service providers who want to receive funding to work with delinquent and at-risk youths. This year, the North Carolina Department of Public Safety is providing roughly $1.4 million dollars to Mecklenburg County, and the JCPC is strongly encouraging non-profit agencies from our community to apply.
In particular, the JCPC is looking for mental health and substance abuse services, as well as interpersonal skill building, mentoring, and academic programs.
A mandatory pre-bid conference will take place on March 14th. Proposals will be due by April 3rd. If service providers are interested in applying for the grant funds, they should visit the County’s website for additional information. Agencies may also visit the County’s Facebook page and Twitter account for a link to the funding announcement.

Dr. George E. Davis House Set to Re-open
On Friday, April 11, 2014, Johnson C. Smith University (JCSU), in partnership with Mecklenburg County, will celebrate the opening of the recently restored Dr. George E. Davis House. The 8:00am outdoor ceremony will take place at 301 Campus Street on the campus of JCSU.
The Dr. Davis House is one of Charlotte’s most significant African-American and historical landmarks as it was the home of the first black professor at Biddle Institute (now Johnson C. Smith University) which was built in the1890’s. The $800,000 restoration which began in the fall of 2011 was partially funded by a loan of $450,000 from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Historic Landmarks Commission.
The restored structure will be the headquarters of the Foster Village Network Center. This innovative initiative serves youths who are phasing out of the foster care system and preparing to enter college.
Board members are invited to attend the Dr. Davis House Opening and Ribbon Cutting Program as honored guests. A formal invitation will be sent to all Board members in the coming weeks. Board members with questions should contact Assistant County Manager Leslie Johnson at 704-432-0090 or via e-mail.
-- Dena Diorio, County Manager
