The Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) is a city-wide effort aimed at updating the policies and regulations that guide growth and development in Charlotte.

  • Regulations: The UDO will be the primary tool to implement Charlotte’s plans and policies through development regulations. It will combine multiple development ordinances, including the Zoning Ordinance, into one set of regulations.

By updating policies and regulations, the UDO will make it much easier to implement the City’s policies and plans and create great places.

Some advanced work on parts of the UDO will be completed in 2018, and the first public draft of the complete ordinance will be available by early 2019. There will be multiple online and in-person opportunities to be involved in the UDO. To receive notifications about engagement opportunities please sign up for updates.
