The Charlotte Neighborhood Equity and Stabilization (NEST) Commission was approved through the adoption of the
Charlotte Future 2040 Comprehensive Plan and is charged with reviewing and recommending specific anti-displacement strategies and tools for protecting residents of moderate to high vulnerability of displacement.
The commission is established for three years, beginning in 2022, and will report regularly to the
Great Neighborhoods City Council Committee. Commission members, appointed by the mayor and Charlotte City Council, consist of housing advocates; neighborhood leaders and community organizers; residents who have experienced or are experiencing displacement; real estate development representatives; urban studies and planning representatives; housing finance representatives; land use representatives; and neighborhood conditions representatives.
The commission is supported by city staff from
Housing & Neighborhood Services, the
City Manager’s Office, and
Planning, Design & Development.
Commission meeting times will be announced on the
citywide events calendar.
Residents interested in the work of the NEST Commission are encouraged to view the
displacement risk dashboard. The dashboard can provide a better understanding of the potential for displacement risk in Charlotte neighborhoods; catalyze collective action to help residents stay in place; and inform the development of migration strategies now and in the future.
