About


Eastland Area Strategies Team

The Eastland Area Strategies Team (E.A.S.T.) is a volunteer board established to work toward the recommended goals of the Eastland Area Plan. We are business people, non-profits and neighborhood representatives working to improve the future and quality of life for the people of Charlotte East through economic development.

As Charlotte rapidly grows and changes, the city's east side is quickly becoming an area of excitement and progress. With its location close to downtown, beautiful established neighborhoods, and international and cosmopolitan flair, Charlotte East welcomes newcomers while maintaining the loyalty of longtime residents.
