At the District Councilmember’s request, the Planning Department is studying and working on possible changes to and refinements of land use policy along Charlotte Pike from I-440 to White Bridge Road.
Map of the study area
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.
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.
