Community Profile

Area Map

The City of Concord is located in the Piedmont region of North Carolina in the western half of Cabarrus County. As the largest municipality in Cabarrus County in both land area and population, Concord's population represents nearly half of the County's total population.  With Concord being a part of the larger metropolitan region anchored by the City of Charlotte, it is within close proximity to Uptown Charlotte and other regional employment, shopping and entertainment centers.

Interstate 85 traverses the City along its northern border, making Concord easily accessible. The new Interstate 485 Outerbelt provides residents with linkages throughout the metropolitan region.  Completion of the final sections of the Outerbelt will improve Concord's connection to the I-77 corridor, a key route to mid-west and northern states, as well as to central Charlotte, Pineville, and many South Carolina destinations such as Rock Hill and Columbia.  Concord is home to the Concord Regional Airport, the 4th busiest airport in the State. In addition, Charlotte/Douglas International Airport, one of the top-rated airports in the nation, is only 30 miles south of Concord.
