Last summer the City of Charlotte Planning, Design & Development Department kicked-off the Charlotte Future 2040 Policy Map process as a first step in putting the Charlotte Future 2040 Comprehensive Plan into action. Thank you to those of you who have participated in engagement in this effort to date.

The SECOND DRAFT of the Charlotte Future 2040 Policy Map is now available for review!

After releasing the first draft Charlotte Future 2040 Policy Map in October 2021, the project team collected and reviewed the community input received and completed revisions to the map, including:

  1. Technical Revisions – Resulting from noticed inconsistencies, Staff review, and data corrections and updates.
  2. Community-Driven Revisions – Resulting from comments heard from the community relating to Place Types preferences and local knowledge.
