​West Boulevard Corridor Vision

For over twenty years, the City of Charlotte has invested in corridors because of the critical role each plays in supplying basic needs and opportunities for their communities.

As stated in the 2007 Business Corridor Revitalization Strategic Plan, The City will take a leadership role in developing and implementing public and private collaborative strategies and investments that aim to:

  • Expand the tax base in the business corridors;
  • Attract private sector investment to grow jobs, businesses and services; and
  • Support the revitalization of the corridors into mixed use areas promoting the adjacent neighborhoods as safe, viable, and sustainable.

In partnership with the West Boulevard Neighborhood Coalition, the City of Charlotte led a study that served as a first step in providing a vision for the corridor with a focus on the intersections of Remount, Clanton and Old Steele Creek.  Over the course of three workshops the community discussed the existing corridor, identified opportunities for investment, and envisioned future change. Intended to be utilized as a living document, the Playbook defines a shared vision for West Boulevard as a vibrant corridor into the city.
