Charlotte, N.C. (July 22, 2021) – The City of Charlotte Planning, Design, and Development department has launched the Charlotte Future 2040 policy mapping process as a first step to the implementation of the Charlotte Future 2040 Comprehensive Plan.
With continuing input from the community, the Planning Department is using a place types tool to create a map that translates place-based policies from the plan to specific locations throughout the community. Place types are a new classification system used to organize patterns of development.
"This map, a companion to the Charlotte Future 2040 Comprehensive Plan, will not alter or change any principles or goals in the adopted plan but will map out specific policies to realize the plan's vision," said Planning Director Taiwo Jaiyeoba. "This is the next step to realizing those principles and goals working together."
