The Center City Plan is a ten year plan that has been developed to establish a set of strategies for the future redevelopment and sustainability of the existing neighborhoods that surround the City’s downtown. City Council adopted the plan in December 2003. Center City is defined as the area bounded by Interstate I-85, US Highway 3 (Branchview Drive), US Highway 601 (Warren C. Coleman Blvd.), and US Highway 29 (Concord Parkway). In order to evaluate these neighborhoods more closely, Center City was broken down into fourteen (14) neighborhoods.
The plan includes: Neighborhood Improvement Strategies, Neighborhood Logos, Future Land Use Map, Multi-Modal Connections Map, Corridor Improvement Strategies, Development Incentives.
