"I'd like to thank the Charlotte City Council for voting to adopt the Charlotte Future 2040 Policy Map, which is an important first step in implementing the Charlotte Future 2040 Comprehensive Plan" said Alyson Craig, the city's interim planning director. "I am appreciative of the hard work by our staff and grateful for all the input we have received from the community throughout this process. We ask the community to remain engaged as we embark on the community area planning process set to begin later this year after the adoption of the Unified Development Ordinance.
