The Charlotte City Council voted 6-4 to pass the Unified Development Ordinance during Monday night’s meeting.
It’s the zoning plan and set of rules to regulate future construction and development in Charlotte. Neighborhoods full of single-family homes would change if the UDO passes.
Sustain Charlotte shares concerns about displacement in the city and encourages the council to adopt anti-displacement strategies when they are proposed by the Neighborhood Equity and Stabilization Commission.
The organization said displacement is already happening in many neighborhoods traditionally zoned only for single-family homes and more housing options to help provide additional homes within existing neighborhoods as Charlotte’s population grows.
