CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Oct. 13, 2021) — The Charlotte Planning, Design & Development Department and the Charlotte Department of Transportation released
the first draft of the integrated Charlotte Future 2040 Policy Map and Charlotte Streets Map Wednesday.
The 2040 Policy Map is a companion to the Charlotte Future 2040 Comprehensive Plan and provides guidance for the type and intensity of development that is appropriate throughout the city.
"We are thankful to the community for sharing its input over the past several months which helped craft the first draft of the Charlotte Future 2040 Policy Map," said Taiwo Jaiyeoba, director of planning. "Now begins the work of reviewing the outcome and together mapping our future growth."
The Charlotte Streets Map is a companion and supporting document to the Charlotte Future 2040 Policy Map and the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO). It shows how each street should ultimately evolve to meet the city's mobility and public realm needs.
"We are excited to publicly share the first draft of the Charlotte Streets Map in support of the 2040 Policy Map and the UDO," said Liz Babson, director of transportation. "It reflects the transportation policies that have been developed and adopted through the years and allows us to grow into the city envisioned by the 2040 Plan."
The release of the draft integrated map follows the release of the
first draft of the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) last Thursday.
City Seeks Continued Community Input
The community is invited to review the first draft of the integrated map of the Charlotte Future 2040 Policy Map and Charlotte Streets Map and
provide feedback online and at upcoming virtual community conversations to be held between Oct. 14 and Nov. 9. Residents are encouraged to register for a community conversation to discuss the integrated map in depth by geographical location.
