Mayor Vi Lyles and Charlotte City Council have assembled the Community Recovery Task Force to support families and businesses through the COVID-19 pandemic and help plan for recovery. The task force will focus on three specific areas: Small Business, Housing, and the Airport. Task force objectives include:
Anticipating and planning for Charlotte's post-recovery challenges
Listening to the community regarding the challenges people are facing as they navigate a new working and living environment
Developing recommendations for how Charlotte, specifically city government, can pivot to support changes needed as a result of the pandemic
Providing residents with a long-term vision for a healthy, stable economic and civic environment
Mayor Lyles and Mayor Pro Tem Julie Eiselt will lead the task force and develop the final community report. Each Recovery task force area includes four city council members and seven sector leaders.
Each meeting will be broadcast on the Gov Channel and Gov Channel online, and livestreamed to
