2040 Plan Draft

Charlotte, N.C. (May 20, 2021) – The City of Charlotte today presented the recommended draft of the Charlotte Future 2040 Comprehensive Plan, now available online at

The plan incorporates input from thousands of Charlotte residents collected during the past three years at events and forums held throughout the city. The events, including several town halls hosted by city council members, covered key topics such as single-family zoning and 10-minute neighborhoods as well the fiscal impacts of the plan.

Mayor Pro Tem and Chair of the Transportation, Planning and Environment Committee Julie Eiselt and Assistant City Manager and Director of Planning, Design and Development Department Taiwo Jaiyeoba today discussed key revisions to the plan and next steps in the process.

"This plan reflects input from literally thousands of Charlotte residents across our city," said Eiselt. "Together, we are creating a plan that will guide Charlotte’s development and create a city that fosters opportunity in every neighborhood."

City seeks continued resident input

Residents will have the opportunity for further input during an upcoming community conversation with planning staff. The live conversation about the recommended draft will allow residents to provide feedback prior to staff’s presentation of the final draft plan for adoption by City Council.

Interested residents must complete the community conversation sign-up form to participate. Staff will also be taking questions submitted through the Facebook and YouTube video comments.

I want to thank everyone who has participated and provided feedback that have shaped this Plan so far. However, the journey is not over. We still need your participation and feedback, especially if you haven’t done so already," said Jaiyeoba. "We want this to be a people’s Plan."

Residents are also encouraged to provide their feedback and comments online, via email at, or leave a message at 311 through June 3, 2021.
