Community Planning Academy
In March 2016 the Planning Department’s Community Planning Division kicked off the initial Community Planning Academy(CPA). CPA is a free educational program accessible to any Charlotte resident
who interested in learning more about the role planning plays in building
communities. It is a program of six monthly classes that provides an
introduction to community planning, transportation, zoning, urban design, and
the development process. The goal is to empower residents with a better
understanding of community planning so they can effectively engage in planning
efforts both in their neighborhood and the city. The 2017 Community Planning
Academy began in April.
The Urban Design team supports the Community
Planning Academy by leading the Urban Design and Community Character session and providing design assistance.
