Charlotte's Future: 2040 Comprehensive Plan

The 2040 Comprehensive draft plan is underway. This plan paves the way for what Charlotte could look like in the years ahead. Your voice is important and needs to be heard, as this is the future of your city! Learn all about what the 2040 plan has to offer by building your own "future Charlotte" with this interactive game that lets you choose what you build and where you build it. 

You can also share your thoughts and comments online 24/7, and explore the CLT Future 2040 site for frequently asked questions. 

Restrictions Changing in NC

As the COVID-19 vaccine continues to roll out, Governor Roy Cooper announced a new executive order that will ease restrictions effective 5pm on Friday, March 26. 

However, the mask mandate is still in effect, as well as social distancing guidelines. Be smart & be safe! Read on for more + learn when and where you can get vaccinated, if you choose.  

A New Way to Recycle

Did you know that most of your plastic takeout containers are not actually recyclable? Nope. You may be putting them in the green bin, but unfortunately that's just likely to send your whole bin to the landfill. We have a better alternative: Bring them, cleaned, to the South End Farmers Market on Saturday mornings. We'll collect them so that Envision Charlotte can process them and turn them into PPE and new plastics. A win all around! 

OK, so what do I do? Collect clean and sticker-free #5 takeout food containers and bring them to the South End Farmers Market each Saturday from 8am - 1pm.  Envision Charlotte will take care of the rest!
Planning the perfect night in? Let our randomizer decide where you buy your spring scented candle, (we're almost there...) bottle of wine, and yummy take-out for the perfect Saturday night at the house. Maybe a new blanket to snuggle with too while you binge watch a new show? The randomizer has you covered.
