Biographical/Historical note

In 1969, the North Carolina General Assembly approved legislation creating an 18 member Charlotte Mecklenburg Charter Commission. As a result of studies, public hearings, and visits to other cities, the Commission proposed, in January, 1971, a consolidation of governments for the city of Charlotte, the county's five towns, and the county of Mecklenburg. Voters rejected to plan on March 22, 1971. The work of the Commission resulted in two official documents. The report, Responsible, Responsive Government, describes how the commission operated, lists the reports and studies completed, examines the existing governmental structures and the proposed consolidation plan with maps of the suggested electoral districts), and explains the reasons for the Commission's recommendations. The second document, The Proposed Charter for the Consolidated Government of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County, contains the full text of the charter and the legislation that would have been required if the charter had been approved.

Wicker, Consolidation: An Account of the Activities Surrounding the Effort to Consolidate the City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County; Schley Lyons, Citizen Attitudes and Metropolitan Government; William Moye, Charlotte Mecklenburg Consolidation: Metrolina in Action (1975); and George Douglas Carroll, City County Consolidation: The Charlotte Mecklenburg, North Carolina, Case (1974).]
