This interactive session will focus on three key areas: Zoning, Developers/Development, and Community Advocacy.

When: Tuesday, May 28, 2024 at 5 p.m.

Where: University City Partners Conference Room – 8801 JM Keynes Drive, Suite 410 (subject to change depending on number of RSVP)

What you can expect:

  • Gain insights into the essence of zoning, its historical roots, and its application within and around Charlotte. We’ll discuss local topics such as the 2040 comprehensive plan and the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO), providing you with a comprehensive understanding of the zoning landscape.
  • Provide a broad overview on how development works from and how developers “develop” property. It will cover Charlotte specific items like rezonings, housing supply and land use. There will also be a case study of local area rezoning that illustrates the discussions from Zoning and Development.
  • Community Advocacy will cover the City’s process for rezonings and how individuals and communities can get involved to shape developments in their areas. This segment aims to empower residents with actionable insights into the collaborative interplay between City Planning, Developers, and Communities.
