2030 Land Use Plan draft available for public review
Friday, January 19, 2018
UPDATED (February 1, 2018): Please note a Public Hearing has been scheduled for the February 20 Planning and Zoning Commission meeting, who will consider if the 2030 Land Use Plan is ready for City Council adoption. Pending the outcome of the Planning and Zoning Commission, the City Council could hold a Public Hearing as soon as March 8.
CONCORD – The City of Concord invites the public to review the draft of the document that will guide the development of the community over the next 10-15 years. The draft 2030 Land Use Plan is now available for review at concordnc.gov/2030.
With the assistance of Tindale Oliver, Planning and Neighborhood Development staff have been working to update the City's Land Use Plan to provide the framework for land use and development through the year 2030. The existing Land Use Plan, referred to as the 2015 Land Use Plan, was created in 2004 and updated in 2007.
The final plan will guide City officials as they develop future budgets, plan infrastructure and other services, make important land use decisions, and revise current policies within the Concord Development Ordinance. The draft documents also include a preliminary implementation schedule.
The 2030 Land Use Plan will be an official statement by the City of its vision, intentions, goals, objectives, and strategies for future land use development. The study area includes land within the City’s current boundaries, as well as areas outside the City limits that could be annexed in the future.
The draft plan represents the culmination of a year of data collection, including stakeholder interviews, a survey, and an analysis of the community’s characteristics and trends. The background information and analysis can be found in the appendices, which are also available for public review. It is anticipated that public hearings on the recommended plan will be held at Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council meetings in the coming months, but the dates have not been determined yet. Additionally, in advance of the public hearings, comments may be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
