The 2015 Land Use Plan serves as a planning tool to guide the development of land within the City. On May 10, 2007, the Concord City Council approved several revisions to the 2004 Land Use Plan. Unlike planning laws in some states of the nation, the development of a Land Use Plan is not mandated by the State of North Carolina. However, the City Council recognizes the important connection between planning and wise utilization of resources along with organized growth. Additionally, the plan serves to protect the assets of the City by promoting good land development regulations.
The Land Use Plan is advisory in nature. Although not a binding document, it shall be used as a tool to help decision makers guide development. The plan is based around existing and planned infrastructure and depicts what will make the best economical sense for the taxpayers of the City of Concord.
Although designed as a 10-year plan, the Land Use Plan is subject to change at any time since it is not a regulatory controlling document. As land is developed and the needs of the community evolve over time for the general population of Concord and City Council, periodic updates will be necessary to keep the plan current.
There are eight (8) general goals identified in this plan. These goals are identified below:
1. Balance of Land Uses
2. Vehicular and Pedestrian Connectivity
3. Sustainable Community
4. Preservation of Unique Character
5. Compatible Land Uses
6. Adequate Infrastructure
7. Farmland, Natural Resource and Open Space Preservation
8. Linking Plans and Strategies
