Charlotte is one of the nation’s fastest growing cities, built amid diverse areas and unique neighborhoods, with families and people who recognize the qualities of a dynamic city. This growth, however, presents both challenges and opportunities alike. Due to this, the city is considering a plan that will guide this growth over the next several decades. This plan will directly affect every Charlotte citizen, both current and future, making it really important that you pay attention to this critical policy guide.
Over the past few months, you may have heard mentions of a “Charlotte 2040 Comprehensive Plan.” However, the majority of Charlotte’s citizens have no idea what this is, much less what it means for our city.
Elected leaders rolled the current draft of the plan out for input amid the chaos of the pandemic and are still actively considering it. This conspicuous launch date raises cause for concern, as citizens were more concerned about their current safety and health during its launch, rather than city policy changes, and rightly so.
As an industry leader, it is crucial that you weigh in. That’s why we launched the “Let’s Get it Right, Charlotte” public awareness campaign. The current plan, that will decide how Charlotte grows over the next 20 years, has proposed policies that stand to negatively affect every current and future Queen City citizen.
It’s up to us to make sure that this critical document reflects our values, protects current and future citizens, and preserves the uniqueness of Charlotte.
