Focus Areas

​Housing & Neighborhood Development

“Charlotte will sustain and create distinct and diverse neighborhoods for all its residents.”

Charlotte’s housing and neighborhood development team believes every home and neighborhood in our city should be valued and celebrated. Our distinct, livable neighborhoods offer character and are the crown jewel for the delivery of city services and programs.  Charlotte seeks to enhance residents’ ability to guide and advance the housing and community development agenda for their areas to create and maintain vibrant and sustainable communities where everyone can reach their full potential. The City of Charlotte will:

  • Offer more affordable housing options
  • Keep neighborhoods attractive and environmentally friendly
  • Keep neighborhoods connected and vibrant
  • Keep neighborhoods welcoming and engaging
  • Expand economic success for everyone

Housing & Neighborhood Development as a council priority

Housing & Neighborhood Development Focus Area Plan FY2018 and 2019

Diverse, livable communities are critical to Charlotte’s growth and competitiveness. It is the goal of the Housing and Neighborhood Development committee to create a space for the community to share their vision for Charlotte’s future in community development that will result in vibrant and sustainable communities. 

Members of the committee are appointed by the Mayor of Charlotte. The committee provides comprehensive initiatives designed to foster economic development and improve quality of life issues in Charlotte's older, urban neighborhoods and business areas.
