Westover Hills meeting introduces Charlotte Place Types/UDO

How can planning address noise?  Who takes care of parks?

These were a couple of questions neighbors from Westover Hills asked planning staff during a presentation on Charlotte Place Types/Unified Development Ordinance (UDO). Noise can be addressed by zoning, requiring separation distances between residential and industrial uses.  Parks are maintained by Mecklenburg County Park & Recreation, but park and greenway land is often acquired through the City of Charlotte’s land development process.

Our conversation at Westover Hills’ monthly neighborhood meeting on January 10, 2017 is yet another way we’re reaching out to the community.  If your organization’s interested in learning more about Charlotte Place Types/UDO, check out Request A Meeting under Get Involved on our home page.
