Charlotte, N.C. (May 20, 2022) – The City of Charlotte released
the first draft of the Strategic Mobility Plan on Friday.
The Strategic Mobility Plan (SMP) intends to shape a new mobility future for the city by leveraging transportation to implement the Charlotte Future 2040 Comprehensive Plan. The SMP will integrate existing transportation plans and policies into one single plan, establishing new goals for mobility, modernizing current transportation policies and helping to align the 2040 Policy Map and the Unified Development Ordinance to better shape the city's future.
"The Strategic Mobility Plan is a critical step in implementing the vision of Charlotte's 2040 Plan to offer everyone in our city safe and equitable mobility choices," said Liz Babson, director of the City of Charlotte's Department of Transportation.
The city will host virtual engagement sessions on Thursday, May 26 at 6 p.m. (Thursday Zoom Meeting ), and on Tuesday, May 31, at noon (Tuesday Zoom Meeting ) to welcome community feedback on the draft. The community may also leave comments directly in the draft on the city's Strategic Mobility Plan Public Input page or email feedback to
firstname.lastname@example.org. A public hearing for the Strategic Mobility Plan is scheduled during the June 13 City Council business meeting, followed by City Council consideration for adoption on June 27.
