Charlotte Proposing Changes to Land Development Standards Manual

Charlotte is proposing a series of changes to its Land Development Standards Manual, which governs new development in both the city and the ETJ.

One proposed change would require street name signs and stop signs to be installed in the planting strip, at least 2′ from the face of the curb, while another would increase the intermediate paving thickness on an arterial street from 2.25″ to 2.5″ to match existing SuperPave spec requirements.

You can review the entire package of changes HERE. The city is asking for all comments to be submitted by e-mail to Brendan Smith, PE, Senior Engineer, Land Development Division at The comment period ends January 1, 2013.
