Charlotte's Community Letter
Charlotte’s Community Letter is about everyone
working together – across all communities – to
make Charlotte the best city for all.
That means four things in particular:
- Trust in community policing
- Quality affordable housing
- Good jobs and the skills to get them
- Other opportunities - the community letter is just the beginning.
Charlotte City Council adopted these actions to address our
city’s challenging issues in partnership with the community at-large, following
the Charlotte demonstrations.

Community Letter Engagement
Staff shared information related to the ongoing initiative to engage more than 10,000 residents in one-on-one conversations by fall 2017. Through the conversations, the city hopes to:
Understand what the items outlined in the Community Letter mean to residents, how they touch them personally and what other ideas the public have to make Charlotte a better place for all.
Share information about the city’s work, progress toward goals and involvement opportunities.
Put a face and a voice to city government and civic leadership.
Through the 311 Call Center, city volunteers of the Take10CLT initiative and members of the Civic Leadership Academy have facilitated more than 3,400 conversations to date.
The central hub for information and updates can be found on the city's website at http://charlottenc.gov/communityletter.
