Complete Communities and Places
To achieve the goal of complete communities, the Charlotte Future 2040 Comprehensive Plan uses Place Types, which provide direction beyond just land use at the parcel level. A Place Type thinks about a place more holistically and at a larger scale, incorporating guidance for land use, transportation, layout, and design. These Place Types will in turn provide the policy-level guidance that will inform the City’s Unified Development Ordinance (UDO). The UDO is the regulatory tool that will shape future development so it results in the type of complete communities and places defined by the Comprehensive Plan. For more information about Charlotte's Place Types, see Section 2 of the Comprehensive Plan.
