Kelly Barnhardt Executive Director Matthews Chamber of Commerce

On behalf of the Red Brick Partnership, we would like to extend our warmest greetings to you through this first issue of the “Welcome to Matthews” magazine. This publication is another step towards the continuing community outreach that is making the Town of Matthews a wonderful destination for visitors to explore, residents to live, and businesses to thrive. In just a few short years, Matthews has seen over twenty five new food & beverage services, from craft beer breweries to coffee shops and restaurants, explode onto the scene in downtown Matthews. Spurred on in part by North End, a mixed use development, the first of its kind in Matthews. North End combines the concept of Live, Work and Play all within walking distance of the historic district of Matthews. The Red Brick Partnership, a nonprofit organization, was formed in 2014 as a response to the economic needs of the Town of Matthews, to form a downtown organization to wrestle with the issues of Downtown redevelopment, and the growth pressures associated with being situated next to the City of Charlotte. Matthews continues to work towards retaining its historic charm and small town feel, all while managing a strong resurgency of the downtown area, with new businesses and residents bringing with them a new vibrancy. The goal of the Red Brick Partnership is to act as a collective body of business owners and residents, to give voice to these individuals in matters related to the growth and preservation of Downtown Matthews. Working alongside the Matthews Chamber, the Town Government and locally elected officials, Matthews has become a destination for anyone wanting to enjoy a variety of entertainment options. Sporting events at the newly opened Sportsplex, to plays and musicals at the Fullwood Theater, to Food Truck Fridays in the Park, are only a small sampling of the events and activities occurring in Matthews. Each First Thursday of the month is a celebration of food & beverage at participating local businesses, along with a seasonal popup market, all of which supports local non-profits to build awareness in the community. The downtown vibe is real, fun, and exciting for everyone to enjoy as we continue to expand opportunities for people to Live, Work and Play in Matthews. Enjoy Rob Jacik & John R. Urban

Annual festivals, an eclectic music scene, brilliant artists, unique eateries and countless recreational amenities support a diverse lifestyle and spirit that energizes and inspires Matthews residents. Matthews is located in the Piedmont region of North Carolina and situated on the southeastern side of Mecklenburg County, between Charlotte and Monroe. Prior to 1874, transportation in this area was limited to horses and stagecoaches and was an important stagecoach stop between Charlotte and Monroe.The stagecoach era faded in 1874 when railroads came steaming into the area. The Central Carolina Railroad, later known as the Seaboard Air Line Railroad, ran spur tracks off their main Wilmington-Tennessee line through the small town. The first train rolled into town on December 15, 1874. The Railroad named the stop Matthews in honor of Edward Watson Matthews, a director in the company. In 1879, Matthews was incorporated as a municipal corporation in the state of North Carolina with 191 residents listed in the 1880 census. Today, Matthews has a population just over 30,000 and is conveniently located along Interstate 485, U.S. Highway 74, and NC Highway 51. Matthews location is made even more attractive by the relative ease of getting to regional landmarks such as the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Carolina coast within a couple of hours by car. Charlotte Douglas International Airport, the ninth largest airport in the nation based on passenger totals, can typically be reached within 30 minutes.

Matthews • North Carolina

with Mayor Paul Bailey Q.

Congratulations on being elected to your first term as Mayor. What past experiences will help you overcome problems that may rise during your time as mayor?

A. My involvement in the Matthews community began in 1986 working with the Matthews Town Council to establish the Transportation Board and subsequently serving as the first chair. In 1993 I was elected to my first term on the Town Council and served in that capacity for 9 terms. In 2013, I began a four year term serving as the District 6 representative for the CMS Board of Education. Although we have many areas of interest, three major issues facing Matthews are transportation/roads, growth/zoning, and education. My experience provides the historical background, knowledge base, and community relationships required to address the issues in a constructive and positive manner for the Town of Matthews.


What do you specifically hope to accomplish during your term as Mayor?

A. During my term as mayor I want all the citizens of Matthews to feel that their government and representatives are available to them and will listen to their concerns and ideas. We have a great Town staff who do a wonderful job supporting our citizens and maintain a focus on our vision as a Town. This is an asset that we must have to move forward as a community. We will have issues related to growth, zoning, traffic and schools that will need to be addressed. For many of these we will only have one opportunity to “get it right”. I believe we have a great council in place that is experienced, can address the issues in a positive manner, and will listen to our citizen concerns.



If you could change one thing in Matthews, what would it be?

A. I remember when the Hwy 51 bypass was constructed there was an intent to have a minimal number of traffic lights along the corridor. Today we have a number of choke points in the area of the Hwy 74 interchange. Although the businesses in that area are wonderful to have and provide so much benefit to our community, I see this area as a missed opportunity to have been more creative with traffic management and control. On December 11, 2017 the Board approved 800 apartments in zoning applications. This is in addition to those apartments that have been approved through zoning but have not been built. I believe high density housing should be in the downtown area to support our businesses and along the major transportation lines near planned light rail and bus stations. These higher density communities also need to be small developments of 20 to 30 units vs. 400 units.

Q. What is the single biggest step you feel the town could take within the next year to improve the quality of life for residents? A.

Without doubt the situation with John Street has the capability, if not appropriately addressed, to set up a dynamic in our downtown corridor inconsistent with our vision. I believe it is imperative as a community that we come together to promote, as one voice, a plan for John Street that will work as an acceptable compromise and alternative to the “Super Street” originally proposed by NCDOT. It is my desire in 2018 to finalize a plan that the Town and residents can support and one that maintains the visions of a pedestrian and biking community. Although I understand the challenges NCDOT has with the movement of traffic on the Monroe Road/John Street corridor, my priority has been, and will remain, the Town of Matthews.

There’s nothing small about the effect local businesses have on the community. The “shop local” movement that has taken root across the country over the past several years shows that business owners and experts on that movement agree - what’s good for local business is good for the local economy, the community and the customers.


While shopping online can be a convenience for many people, the economic impact of shopping locally has a domino effect on the vitality of communities. It can stimulate local employment, and thus, the local community and economy. When consumers buy more products locally, then businesses have the opportunities or ability to hire more employees. As a result, those people who gain employment then have the ability to spend more money in the local community themselves - therefore, generating substantiality and growth to the local economy.

support other local business professionals and retailers - bookkeepers, accountants, attorneys, web designers, printers, and restaurants, to name a few - that internet sellers do not. Local store front shopping builds strong neighborhoods by sustaining communities, linking neighbors and contributing more to local causes. Our buying decision to shop local and generate local sales tax revenue can literally shape Matthew’s future. Every purchase we make influences the retail landscape, and adopting a “shop local” mentality will only have a positive impact. With only a slight change in behavior, the positive impact can be huge.

Shopping at a local store front instead of the internet is an investment - an investment in the local economy and an investment in the community!

Studies have shown that local businesses reinvest in the local economy at a higher rate than internet retailers. They

So remember, the next time you purchase shoes, household goods, or that new computer, it’s not just shopping it is an investment in the community. n

In 2014, Matthews was designated a Bee City, making it just the fifth city to receive the designation. Today, there are 62 Bee Cities and counting. 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. They continue their work along with the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resource Advisory Board. To learn more or become involved, go to or contact Martha Krauss at 704-841-8900 or
