Welcome JD Yearwood Matthews Chamber of Commerce President

Rob Jacik Red Brick Partnership Co-Chair

John R Urban Red Brick Partnership Co-Chair

Pam Decker Red Brick Partnership Treasurer

On behalf of the Matthews Chamber of Commerce and The Red Brick Partnership, we welcome you to the latest edition of the Welcome to Matthews magazine! In these pages, you will learn more about what makes Matthews the perfect destination for visitors to explore, residents to live, and businesses to thrive. If you’re new to the Matthews area - or thinking of making Matthews your home – welcome! We know you will find that Matthews has so much to offer but still maintains the small-town feel that draws people here. If you have been in Matthews for a while, you may still be pleasantly surprised to see compiled in this single publication so many attractions, services, and photos depicting our great town. To say the past year has been interesting and challenging would be an understatement. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed so much about our world and our lifestyles. Here in Matthews, we are focused on continuing to find creative and positive ways to support each other during this crisis. Our love for this community, our businesses, and our fellow citizens must continue to guide us in our thoughts and actions as we all work together to help our community grow and thrive in positive ways. In Matthews, we are well placed to build a strong recovery. We have a good mix of large employers and ambitious small businesses that can adapt to these extraordinary circumstances. Agility and resilience will be vital in the recovery phase, as company owners/managers take steps to protect the wellbeing of their businesses and their employees. The Matthews Chamber of Commerce has worked extremely hard to help support our business community, provide resources, and distribute accurate information in a timely fashion. We have been able to do this because of the support and investment of our members. Every day we strive (pandemic or not) to build a stronger economy, problem solve, advocate, make connections and provide relevant educational opportunities. The Red Brick Partnership, along with the strong support and cooperation of the Town of Matthews, Economic Development Advisory Committee and Matthews Chamber of Commerce, are all working together to help elevate the historic downtown, the heart and soul of Matthews. The Red Brick Partnership exists to promote, enhance, diversify and support the development of downtown while preserving its rich history. RBP is focused on connecting and collaborating with businesses, residents, and non-profits. Over the coming months, we know that keeping it local will become more important than ever. Please remember to stay safe and be kind. Let’s all continue to keep up the good work and continue to support our friends, neighbors, and local businesses. We will get through this together!

Q. A.

Commissioner Larry Whitley lwhitley@matthewsnc.gov _________________________


What unique personality traits do you bring to the table when serving as Mayor of Matthews? With age (I am 57) comes the ability to better distinguish what is truly important from items of less consequence. This is a particularly useful trait when serving on an elected body of seven people with very disparate life experiences and viewpoints, and I have often used this when considering how voraciously to argue a point during our many deliberations. There is an old military saying - “Is this the hill I want to die on?”. If not, then being more willing to accept compromise than standing in obstinate opposition is better for the group dynamic and produces better results for those we serve. Despite our differences, our Board works exceptionally well together. I also employ my sense of humor from time to time to turn down the temperature in our sometimes-spirited debates.

Who has been the most inspirational person in your life?

A. Outside of my incredibly supportive wife, children, family and friends, I recall a 4th grade teacher named Mr. Gilbert Cantlin who really impacted my life. Mr. Cantlin did not sugarcoat the realities of the winding down Vietnam War, pollution, crime, or other challenges of the time. He truthfully answered our questions on these difficult topics because he knew what we witnessed on the nightly news and that our concerns belied our age. But he also inspired us by showing us the awesome beauty of humanity. He took us backstage at a symphony, showed us great treasures in a museum, reviewed and explained the infrastructure, architecture, and history of our town, told us about other cultures, and bought out of his own pocket school supplies and even mechanical devices like an abacus and an old cash register for us to examine to determine how things worked. He told us the whole world awaited us and nothing was outside of our reach, and that continues to inspire me to this day.

Helping buyers and sellers with their real estate needs since 2010

As COVID-19 continues to impact the world, what do you hope to focus on in 2021 to make sure Matthews returns to some semblance of normal?

A. It seems we learn almost daily of new and ever-changing variants of COVID, so making sure our residents have the ability to get vaccinated as soon as possible is a top priority. I pledge to continue to advocate for a strong vaccine supply for Matthews by working with regional, state and federal agencies, and I urge everyone that is eligible to get vaccinated to do so as soon as possible. In addition, I have a great concern for our local businesses that have been ravaged by this pandemic. It is my hope that our citizens will join me in buying local goods and services whenever possible. I expect a “semblance of normal” by late summer, and a normal school year to begin in the fall. I am particularly looking forward to hearing the Butler Bulldog band play and watching our football team emerge victorious on a crisp fall evening.

Q. A.

What are the biggest issues facing Matthews, and how do you hope to address them? The elephant in the room, of course, is COVID. Beyond the pandemic, we have three pressing issues I will seek continued improvements on in the coming year:

Periodic surveys point to traffic as our residents’ number one concern. Our Board and town staff will continue to work with NCDOT to prioritize and complete projects here that move traffic more efficiently, and where appropriate around instead of through Matthews. We are also pressing for more and easier access to public transportation options, particularly along our higher density corridors. As a voting member of the Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization and Metropolitan Transit Commission, I work directly with the decision makers on these issues. I am proud to say we are making inroads to add workforce attainable housing in Matthews. Several new developments will set aside a portion of housing units at long-term lower sales points or lease rates to make them more affordable for our teachers, hospital and municipal employees, blue collar workers, etc. These units will be indistinguishable from others in the same developments but will make living in Matthews a possibility for those that currently can not find suitable, affordable housing here. Details will follow in the near future, but we are currently considering a few options that will increase the total park space in Matthews. As our population continues to grow and we rapidly approach a complete build-out of the remaining land here, I believe now is the time to acquire some portion of our undeveloped open spaces and set them aside for park and recreational uses. They aren’t making any more land, and in my estimation banking away land now for future park use is a wise use of our resources, particularly considering our strong desire to maintain our quality of life.
