2030 Land Use Plan


2030 Land Use Plan Update:

The City of Concord is currently working to update the Land Use Plan.  The existing Land Use Plan, referred to as the 2015 Land Use Plan, was created in 2004 and updated in 2007.  Once complete, the updated Land Use Plan will provide the vision and framework for land use and development through the year 2030.

The Planning & Zoning Commission will hold a public hearing and discuss the 2030 Land Use Plan at their regular February 20, 2018 meeting.

What is a Land Use Plan?

A Land Use Plan is a tool used for guiding the growth, redevelopment, and overall improvement of a city.

  • The plan serves as the official statement by the City of its vision, intentions, goals, objectives, and strategies for future land use development.

  • It serves as the basis for land development regulations and decisions such as rezoning or special use permits, capital improvements, transportation, environmental, and historic resource protection initiatives.

  • The plan also establishes policy to help guide public and private activities as they relate to land use growth and development.

What's Next?

City Council Public Hearing - Tuesday, March 6, 2018 at 4:00 PM at the City of Concord Council Chambers (35 Cabarrus Ave W).
