Corridors of Opportunity

Beautiful, safe and prosperous communities are places where families can grow strong and build legacies for the future.

Corridors are vital to the health of Charlotte’s communities, serving as links that connect people to the resources and businesses they need to live and thrive. With a $24.5 million investment, the City of Charlotte is renewing its commitment to six key corridors.

As a part of this work, the city has launched a labor study to better understand employment barriers residents face when searching for a job. Residents living or working in Corridors of Opportunity areas are encouraged to complete a brief survey to share details about the challenges faced when searching for a job, and identify the types of jobs they are interested in. Complete the online survey by December 11.

Building Opportunity for Our Community

This work is community-driven and community-focused.

The goal is to provide high-quality public services that build opportunity in these corridors, which are rich in history and pride. The City of Charlotte is creating fertile ground for prosperity by bolstering community programs and projects; building on the momentum of past investments; and filling in gaps in infrastructure and transportation, workforce and business development, housing and code enforcement, public safety, and urban design.

Targeted Investment in Key Areas

The city is concentrating its resources by investing and facilitating programs in specific locations within each corridor. This ensures long-lasting and positive impacts are realized sooner than they would be through a scattered approach.

Through the Corridors of Opportunity program, the city is vetting current and future projects and programs to make sure they are consistent with community feedback, and account for the unique needs of each corridor, such as affordable housing, job opportunities, mobility options, and community celebration.
