Here’s What We Heard

If you’re one of 159 people that recently attended Community Workshops or one one of 2,005 people that visited us online, thank you for your interest in the UDO. Check out our Photo Gallery for scenes from the Community Workshops.

These meetings, held across the city Nov. 29 – Dec. 15, 2016, started some important conversations between City staff and the community (click and zoom in on graphic below). Housing was a popular conversation topic, ranging from housing affordability to housing design in both historic districts and newly developing areas.

People shared their favorite places in a variety of formats including paper surveys at meetings and online via our “Meeting in a Box”.  This includes an interactive map where you can Share Your Favorite Place.

The community workshops and online exercises introduced Charlotte Place Types to the community, so our next step will be to start mapping these Place Types. Mapping Workshops are planned for Spring 2017 and more information on these will be coming shortly.
