The City of Charlotte has established a Citizens Advisory Group to consider various regulatory and financial incentives seeking to encourage private sector development of affordable housing. At the initial public meeting held September 15, 2011, staff from Neighborhood & Business Services and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Planning Department provided an overview of these incentive-based strategies. A citizen advisory group is being sought to address the regulatory strategies and its process is scheduled to begin September 29, 2011. To sign up for this Citizen Advisory Group, please contact Bryman Suttle at 704-336-8325. You can also follow the process at www.charlotteplanning.org.
