CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Carowinds will get incentives from the City of Charlotte for its $50 million upgrade and expansion. The city council approved giving Cedar Fair more than $300 thousand in grant money over three years. That money would offset property taxes. Opponents on the city council argue most of the new jobs at Carowinds will be low-paying and seasonal. Mecklenburg county commissioners considered chipping in almost $600 thousand Tuesday night.
