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.

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.
