Please explain your interpretation of "great" schools, diversity, and close to downtown. You might want to give a ballpark of your housing allowance.

What is your definition of diverse? 50% white and 50% black? Some other proportion? What grades are your children in? How far from Uptown (which is what Charlotte calls its downtown) do you want to be? Any reason you don't want to be in Charlotte itself?

Some of your requirements are curious or impossible to find. No crime rate? What does that mean? "No crime rate"? Everywhere has at least some crime. "No near bye lakes"...how far is "near bye"? "Less chance of tornadoes or hurricanes"...the chance is the same everywhere around Charlotte. "No heavy traffic"...rush hour around Charlotte has heavy traffic everywhere.

Have you ever visited Charlotte before? That would probably be a good first step.

at least 30% black in the Suburb Community. Don't matter what % of other races it has. Forget about schools, we are retired with no kids. Just wanna have fun in the Suburb Community with all races but at least have some African American. Forget about crime, tornados and hurricanes we can't control that. We wanna find a nice Suburb Community about 20 minutes from Uptown Charlotte or In Charlotte but not close to Uptown. Don't want to drive thru farm lands or country from our house to remote to uptown. Don't wanna move into a suburb community with woods, pounds or lakes. Trails is ok. Ranch style homes only in the 270.000- 300.000 range. I'm coming to visit the end of July. Just wanna know where to start. plan on meeting with the builders then go from there. There's 2 builders I'm interested in. Robert weekly and m/I homes. Hope this will help.

I would be open to considering a condo/apartment/townhome in close proximity to downtown. You may also find some single-family detached homes, w/no HOA, in the Wilmore vicinity (near downtown).

The Oakhurst section of Charlotte might be a good fit.

Don't think you will find a 30% black suburb around Charlotte to be honest. Lots of trees though, and trails to pounds by lakes. All about 20 minutes in each direction except Down from Uptown.

New/newer construction is your best bet as most of the established neighborhoods in and around Charlotte have trees. You should have plenty of diversity in your price range with new construction homes.
