In Matthews, NC we are incredibly fortunate to have the diversity and caliber of businesses and non-profits here, as well as the strength and longevity of many local leaders. The Matthews Chamber of Commerce is home to approximately 400 members located in Matthews and the surrounding communities. We are considered a beacon for small and medium sized businesses to network and feel connected to one another and the Kelly Barnhardt community, but we also have many large businesses that have woven the fabric of the Matthews Chamber tightly for many years as well. We are a resource for your business no matter the size or age; we can help you find channels for success whether it’s by attending our many networking events or simply by advertising your business with us internally and externally. It’s all about CONNECTIONS! Here at the Matthews Chamber we pride ourselves on working closely with the Town of Matthews, The Matthews Historical Society and Mecklenburg County. Our offices are inside the Visitor’s Center for Matthews, so we see many people come through this building every day. People who are either moving to the area, or sometimes people who have lived here for generations, but just never had the time to visit before. We love to show off the Town of Matthews and you can definitely get the best of both worlds here, which is a town that is growing and vibrant, but also manages to maintain its small-town charm and feel. I guarantee that you could find a Matthews Chamber business to fulfill just about any business need you have. And that’s why we love working with The Biz Well Corporation to create this Welcome to Matthews magazine, because it truly emphasizes all the Matthews businesses that make up our community. And by shopping local, you are supporting a business owner here who can also then give back to the community in many ways. It’s a wonderful circle of success! At the Chamber, we highly encourage and support everyone inside and outside of our community to shop local, but we also like to encourage our businesses to support one another as well. You can help support your community, your local businesses and YOUR Matthews Chamber by visiting our website at: We always have great events coming up that change monthly too, so be sure to check our calendar frequently.

MATTHEWS 101 Have you ever wondered about the inner workings of local government? Matthews 101 is an informative

with Mayor Paul Bailey Q. A.

Q. A.

Q. A. Q. A.

Q. A.

What’s new within the last year that you’re most excited about for Matthews? The evolving of the Matthews Police Department and the Fire & EMS Department. Over the years, the citizens of Matthews have enjoyed excellent service and support of these departments. In 2018 we saw both departments change to further support our citizens. The Police Department has a new Chief which has allowed new ideas and approaches for policing to be incorporated. In addition, we added a motorcycle unit that will support with traffic control and enforcement. The Fire & EMS Department transitioned to a 24-hour paid staffing model at the end of 2018. Now, career and volunteer firefighters and EMT’s work side by side around the clock ensuring sufficient coverage.

program where you can learn about town departments and functions that help make Matthews a great place to live. Matthews 101 participants will learn more about local government, the Town of Matthews, its staff, departments and services provided suring this six week educational program. Participants get a hands-on learning experience through weekly sessions focused on a different department or area of town government, including Police, Fire and EMS, Parks and Recreation, Public Works and more. Participants will be able to share this knowledge with their neighbors and have the ability to be an effective leader in their neighborhood. Are You Eligible? To be selected, you must live in the Town of Matthews and be willing to commit the time to this informative and interesting program. The Town of Matthews will strive for diverse participation in this program. What is the Cost? There is no cost to Matthews citizens who attend the sessions. For more information, please contact Maureen Keith at or 704-708-1278.

What does your typical day-to-day look like for you? My typical day has changed in 2019 as I have retired from my full-time job and can concentrate on being the Mayor. The Mayor's position is part-time job, but as the Town has grown, the demands have increased. The days are enjoyable because of the interface I have with the Town staff, citizens and our business owners. I am free to have more interface with our surrounding Towns (Mint Hill, Stallings and Indian Trail) and the other municipalities in Mecklenburg County. What do you do in your time off? I try to spend as much time as I can with my grandchildren and family. I enjoy fishing, playing golf, and the beach. And then there is always the "Honey-do List". What are your priorities for next year? During 2019 I want to spend more time looking to the future of Matthews. There are many ongoing projects that consume my time - issues like John Street, rezoning, and keeping our taxes low. However, there is a need to develop ideas for the next big plans for Matthews and find ways to make these ideas happen. What is energizing Matthews? Matthews has become a destination in its own right. I continually hear from folks who love to come to our Town and enjoy popular dining options, shopping, and nightlife. I think the energy in Matthews is the people who make this home and those who come to visit. Having a great downtown that people can enjoy and having all of the shopping conveniences nearby is a mixture that makes us a great place to live, work, and play.

MATTHEWS IS A BEE CITY Bee City USA is a national nonprofit organization that urges municipalities, individuals, organizations, corporations, and communities to promote and establish pollinator-friendly landscapes that are free of pesticides. In 2014, Matthews was designated a Bee City, making it just the fifth city to receive the designation. Today, there are 80 Bee Cities and counting.

230 Matthews Station Street | Matthews, NC 28105 Phone ................................................................. 704-416-5000 Hours: Monday - Thursday 9:00 AM-5:00 PM Friday - Saturday 9:00AM - 5:00PM | Sunday Closed The 15,000 sq. ft. Matthews Branch Library is part of the Matthews Town Center, which also houses the Matthews Town Hall. Because the Matthews Town Center is located next to the old Train Depot, a train theme can be found throughout the library. Special features include a children's computer area shaped like a larger-than-life toy train and a large, crackling fireplace and original artwork.

According to Bee City USA, an astounding 75% of the world’s plant species need pollinators to reproduce and every third bite we eat is thanks to all sorts of pollinators. Pollinators aren’t just exclusively bees – they include butterflies, thousands of species of bees, wasps, moths, and many more. These little insects are vital to fruit, vegetable, and flower growth Martha Krauss, a beekeeper and former Town Commissioner, and Carol Buie-Jackson, founder of the Matthews HAWK (Habitat and Wildlife Keepers) have been leaders in the effort to earn Matthews the Bee City designation.
