Commercial Plan Review Process

Pre-submittal meetings at the E&PM Land Development Division office give a developer and/or site designer the opportunity to have a conceptual development plan viewed by Commercial Zoning, Land Development (Engineering, Site Inspector, Urban Forestry, and Erosion Control), and Charlotte Dept. of Transportation plan reviewers.  The meeting can help determine project requirements and highlight any special concerns or considerations to incorporate into the plan.  The information and comments provided by staff at this meeting are not considered binding in any form.

Please be advised that scheduled meetings are available for public review in our database, ACA (Accela Citizen Access).

After you submit an Urban Conceptual Meeting request, staff will contact requestor and schedule the meeting.  Meetings are held on Tuesday mornings at 9:00 and 10:00 and Thursday afternoons at 1:30 and 2:30 (1 hour each).

Meetings are scheduled on a first come-first serve basis.
