Two for Tuesday


#1) First Draft of Charlotte UDO Released

Late last Thursday Charlotte Planning Staff released the first draft of its proposed Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) – click for Document or Highlight Summary. Once adopted, this document will reset the rules for land development within the City going forward. This is the next step in the process following the adoption of the policy section (Volume 1) of the 2040 Comprehensive Plan that passed the City Council on a 6-5 vote earlier this year. What was initially called Volumes 2 and 3, and now referred to by staff as the Implementation Strategy and Manuals and Metrics was not adopted and may be folded into the Policy Mapping process although details are somewhat unclear. We expect draft maps to be available for viewing on Thursday, October 14th, with final completion and passage by mid to late February 2022. The UDO is projected to go through four drafts with final City Council action planned for mid to late July 2022. The schedule is subject to change as there are a number of complicating factors including the Charlotte City Council Redistricting process and the upcoming 2021 Municipal Election which has been moved to early 2022 (March 8th – Primary, April 26th – General).
