Great cities have vibrant urban cores and Charlotte has the most vibrant in the Southeast. Creative public/private initiatives are key to building the robust Center we enjoy today, and Charlotte Center City Partners has played a vital role in bringing many of these ideas together.
The context for many of our new and ongoing developments was established in the Center City 2020 Vision Plan, which serves as a framework for future development in the Urban Core. Center City Partners orchestrated the public process for approval of that plan. In the Fall of 2008 we partnered with the planning staff of the City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County to start the process for the 2020 Vision Plan.
We also worked with County Parks and Recreation Department to produce a Center City Open Space Plan for Uptown and South End. Other initiatives are detailed below, along with helpful publications that provide more information on the Charlotte Center City.
