CHARLOTTE – The city’s planning staff on Thursday is holding the first of a series of meetings that could result in city staff members recommending changes in transit-oriented development zoning districts.
The stakeholder meeting will be held June 12 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Charlotte Trolley Museum, at 1507 Camden Road in South End. Attendees will be asked about what is and is not working with the current standards of the TOD district, and whether any changes need to be made.
The purpose of the TOD districts is to create a compact and high-intensity mix of residential, office, retail, institutional, and civic uses to promote the creation and retention of uses in areas with high potential for enhanced transit and pedestrian activity, according to the city’s zoning ordinance.
The city is encouraging any developers or land owners who are interested in TOD to attend the meeting. Attendees – fittingly – are advised to take the light rail to the meeting. The closest stop to the Trolley Museum is Bland Street Station.
Additional meetings are expected to follow. For more information about the meetings or about TOD districts, contact Planning Coordinator Bridget Dixon at 704-432-4493.
