Welcome

Welcome to the Website that serves Neighbors and Friends of the Eastway Park and Sheffield Park Neighborhoods of Charlotte, NC.

Eastway Park and Sheffield Park are two well-established Neighborhoods close to Uptown and convenient to Independence Boulvard (US-74), Eastway Drive and Central Avenue. We have a Park—Sheffield Park; two Schools—Winterfield Elementary School and Eastway Middle School; and the Evergreen Nature Preserve located right in our area.

We have an active Neighborhood Association which meets once a Month and works to keep our Neighbors connected, informed and active in our Community. Everyone is welcome to attend our Monthly Neighborhood Meetings.

Tree Banding for Fall Cankerworms

CankerwormNow that the leaves have started to fall, it's a good time to get your trees banded for cankerworms.For more information about how to band your tree and where to get supplies, visit our Tree Banding Information page.

Each year, Charlotte is faced with a growing population of fall cankerworms. These worms eat the leaves of trees in early spring. Although this usually doesn't kill the tree, it does weaken the tree and make it more susceptible to other stresses, such as other insects, disease and drought, and several years of this damage can eventually cause limbs of the tree to die and weaken the entire tree.

We encourage you to band your trees to help reduce the cankerworm population. The process for banding doesn't require a lot of time or know how. It will only take 5 to 10 minutes per Tree depending on its size. If you can help some of your neighbors who aren't physically able to band their own trees, that would really help too.

Streetlight out?

There seems to be a lot of streetlights not working in the neighborhood. Streetlights help with safety and security in our neighborhoods. If you have a streetlight out close to your house, you can report it by calling 311, or by filling out the form on the Duke Energy web site (see link below). You will need the address closest to the light when you report it, as well as the type of light (Cobra and Nema are the most common ones for streetlights in our neighborhood. Cobra are the ones that look like a cobra head, and Nema are the round ones). See the Duke Energy link for photos. It also helps if you can put a piece of tape or ribbon around the pole, so crews can identify the correct light.

Report a streetlight that is out here:
