E&PM's Project Management Process

Engineering & Property Management (E&PM) serves as the project manager for many of the City’s infrastructure projects. E&PM staff work closely with client departments such as Charlotte’s Department of Transportation (CDOT), Charlotte-Mecklenburg Planning Commission and Neighborhood & Business Services as they select and rank their project lists. These lists are submitted to other City Departments, the Budget Office, and the City Manager’s Office for approval. Once City Council approves the priority projects, initial funding needs are estimated and included in a bond referendum. When voters approve the bonds, Engineering & Property Management (E&PM) selects a design consultant and begins the four-phase process for designing and building the project:
  1. Planning & Design phase (includes public involvement)
  2. Bid phase
  3. Land Acquisition phase
  4. Construction phase (includes landscaping)
