City of Charlotte Strategic Parking Plan Virtual Public Engagement
The City of Charlotte is currently developing a Strategic Parking Plan (SPP). The study includes two Phases that will allow us to capture data that reflects today’s landscape and realize future needs. During Phase One of the SPP, the city is studying its on-street parking and curb lane management program in Uptown and South End.
We want your input as we assess the existing on-street parking system to understand parking and loading trends and to learn what needs exist as we develop a plan to provide better curb lane access for all users. Phase One will also include recommendations to update the Residential Parking Permit Program, which is a citywide effort.
Charlotte Strategic Parking Plan engagement portal for information about the SPP, to take the survey, and to provide your thoughts on our interactive feedback map. This is the first of several engagement opportunities over the coming months and through 2023. We appreciate your partnership in this effort to maximize Charlotte’s curb space in a way that better serves your needs into the future!
