The public hearing draft of the Charlotte Avenue Corridor Study is now available for review. The draft study illustrates the community's vision. After adoption, the plan will guide the appropriate land use, development character, and design intent established by balancing ideas and concerns among community stakeholders. The small area plan will be used as a starting point for discussing public and private investment, including zone changes, subdivisions, and public infrastructure investments.

September 6 Community Meeting

Planners hosted a community meeting on Thursday, September 6 at Lentz Public Health Center (2500 Charlotte Pike) to discuss the draft plan, answer questions, and gather feedback.

Draft plan materials are available for public review from September 4 until September 10.

If you are unable to make the community meeting, you may email project manager Dara Sanders your questions and comments,

Land use policy guides the Planning Commission’s actions on zone changes and subdivision requests. Our goal is to ensure that policies affecting the Charlotte Pike area accurately reflect how the members of that community want growth and preservation to happen in the future, with any significant changes guided by community input and discussion.

Any updates made to land use policies will not change current zoning.

Community Meetings

Metro planners held a series of public meetings and discussions, or "charrette," the week of July 16, working with local property owners, residents, and business owners to get community input on any possible policy changes.

Numerous stakeholders (residents, property owners, business owners, development professionals, institutional representatives, and elected officials) participated in the charrette week meetings and design process.

Stakeholders talked with the Community Design team about issues the community faces and worked on design solutions. The Community Design team worked diligently to collect ideas and expectations, identify common goals, address neighborhood design issues promptly, and generate land use policy and appropriate building type concepts.
