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.
Upcoming Council Milestones
Council will receive an update on Community Letter efforts at the March 6 Council Workshop.
February 13 Community Letter Update
The Charlotte City Council received an update Feb. 13 on several key initiatives related to City Council’s Community Letter, an effort to make Charlotte the best city for all. The updates, provided to City Council during Monday’s dinner briefing and business meeting, were designed to provide additional information about ongoing efforts to promote safety, trust and accountability in the City of Charlotte. This included an update on the Citizens Review Board and the city’s Extraordinary Event Ordinance.
In the area of affordable housing, Council voted approve Community Housing Development Grants toward the city’s goal of creating 5,000 affordable and workforce housing units within a three-year period. Council also adopted a resolution approving the private sale of a West Tyvola Road parcel, consisting of about 12 acres of vacant land. The land will be used for the development of a mixed-income rental residential community, which will include up to 200 units of affordable and workforce rental housing units.
