Plans (General / Policy; District & Area)
 

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Planning Department develops plans to serve as policy guides and to address how parts of the community should be maintained and/or changed in the future. Plans make recommendations on land use, zoning, transportation and other issues to realize the vision of the area.

Below are the plans completed by the Planning Department since the early 1990s, as well as those currently underway.
