We’ve partnered with CLT Blog to take a look at the past, present, and future of Charlotte’s vision for its center city.

The Charlotte Center City 2020 Vision Plan planning and design process began in September 2009 and will extend over approximately 13 months. The interactive and engaging public process will provide integral direction for a successful Plan and result in a vision for the Center City that reflects the entire community. Opportunities for participation include stakeholder interviews, working groups, community workshops, a local professional charette and several meetings with the steering and technical committees. The Charlotte Center City 2020 Vision Plan will provide a development framework and planning recommendations for the center of the Charlotte region. This effort will encompass more than Uptown by focusing on connecting adjacent neighborhoods and breaking down the I-277 barrier. In uncertain economic times it becomes even more critical that there is a plan for the region’s economic engine. The Plan will provide direction and set priorities for leveraging finite resources. The planning process will inspire public and private partnerships and foster collaborations within and beyond Center City.
