City of Charlotte: 2040 Plan,
Development Ordinance (UDO), and Strategic Mobility Plan

Below are quick links to the evolving information that will have a dramatic impact on the future of commercial real estate development. NAIOP Charlotte, in conjunction with REBIC and other real estate associations, continues to monitor and inform members about developments.  The 2040 Comprehensive Plan is a visionary document for how Charlotte will grow and develop over the next 20 years. Charlotte Planning created the document with community input, and it will be used as the guide for creating the Unified Development Ordinance (a replacement for our existing zoning code). Members are encouraged to get involved and provide a voice for commercial real estate as these policies unfold.
