Did you know a new plan—called the “Future 2040 Comprehensive Plan”—will determine how Charlotte grows over the next 20 years? It’s up to us to make sure that this critical document reflects our values — and the uniqueness of Charlotte.
Charlotte is one of the nation’s fastest growing cities.
Charlotte is made up of an array of diverse and unique areas- with neighborhoods we all love and admire. For those who call Charlotte home- we agree that we need a strong plan for its future growth. The proposed plan will impact every citizen at every level- and we don’t have time to wait. A plan is needed that will ensure access to quality affordable housing across all income levels, keeps the character of Charlotte intact- and doesn’t break the bank in the process. We are at a crossroads, and our mayor and city council need to adopt a forward thinking plan that will work for all- keeping future generations and residents in mind.
Big plan. Big Impact.
Unfortunately, most Charlotte residents aren’t aware of the plan, especially the details which will guide growth. The current proposal has policies that could increase the cost of housing and negatively impact small businesses and job creators. That’s a problem. And that’s why we need to get it right—before it’s too late.
City leaders and staff rolled out the plan during the pandemic, when citizens were too busy dealing with staying safe and healthy. That’s why we have to ensure all our citizens are fully aware of this proposed massive plan —which will dictate critical policy for the next 20 years. That’s why we need to get this plan right—now.

Contact the city council and mayor, and let them know we need a plan that is unique to Charlotte—one that helps us thrive, without harmful and unclear policies.
Let’s get it right, Charlotte is made up of a group of concerned citizens and advocates fighting to make sure our city remains a great place to live, work and play. Our purpose is to show the people of Charlotte how crucial it is to get this plan right- not just for the current Charlotte, but for future generations to come. With the high cost of housing, we can’t afford a plan that promotes unruly regulations and increases the cost of buying or renovating a home. Most importantly, we are advocating for the council to consider the costs of the plan on our city, and its people. We can’t afford to do anything else.
