From the Paper:

"The appropriation of land development in North Carolina is a regional issue, which is decidedly impacting the environmental balance in the city of Charlotte. One major issue involving this problem is how major corporations and land developers are involved in massive expansions that threaten the environmental sanctity of the area by building on lands vital for ecosystem integrity. These issues revolve around the issues of land usage, long-term economic budgetary allowances, and the need for green building initiatives in the regions of Mecklenburg County. Also, the problem of expansion threatens Charlotte, as it is one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas that are using land at an exponential rate to its environmental capacity."
