Millennials like Charlotte, they’re coming here by the thousands. Now, we have a plan for our future tailored specifically to them courtesy of UNC Charlotte. Mike hears from those behind the new "Millennial Plan" to see what this vision entails.

Apparently, millennials like Charlotte. We are the number one city in the country for them and thousands have already arrived. The good news for them is that we now have a plan for the city just for them. 

Last spring, UNC Charlotte architecture students developed the “Millennial Plan” based on research into our past, best practices and with a focus on these young people. We hear about the plan and its eight concepts for what our future could be like.
