Transit Oriented Development (TOD) Districts

The purpose of the Transit Oriented Development (TOD) Districts is to encourage and enable the development of moderate to high-intensity, compact, mixed-use urban neighborhoods near transit stations where people can live, work, shop, dine, and pursue cultural and recreational opportunities while enjoying a range of mobility choices. TOD development standards, combined with limits on auto-centric uses, are designed to create vibrant neighborhoods with a robust network of streets, sidewalks, and bicycle paths, providing safe and convenient access to transit stations.

The new TOD Districts were adopted by the Charlotte City Council on April 15, 2019 as a Text Amendment (Rezoning Petition 2018-169).

TOD Alignment Rezoning

The City of Charlotte has rezoned 1,555 parcels along the Blue Line light rail corridor to one of the recently-adopted TOD Districts. This was done through Rezoning #2019-102, which was approved by Charlotte City Council on November 18, 2019. Learn more about this initiative and find out whether, and how your property might be affected by this TOD Alignment Rezoning.

The City has developed a “Streets Map” to help implement the TOD Alignment Rezoning. Learn more about the Streets Map here.

Public meetings about the TOD Alignment Rezoning were held in July and September. To view the presentation from the July meetings, click here.

A Public Hearing was held on Monday, October 21 at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center in the Council Chamber located at 600 East Fourth Street.
