Sustain Charlotte applauded the Charlotte City Council for passing the Unified Development Ordinance on Aug. 22. The UDO enacts the Charlotte Future 2040 Comprehensive Plan.
The UDO allows for the creation of more housing, which Sustain Charlotte says is needed now more than ever amid a housing crisis.
"Allowing duplexes and triplexes in areas that have traditionally been reserved only for single-family homes will increase Charlotte's housing supply," said Meg Fencil, Sustain Charlotte's director of engagement and impact. "Hopefully, this will lead to a broader range of housing prices, help more families live in the city, and increase neighborhood diversity."
