Politics Monday: Charlotte's 2040 Plan Inches Closer To City Council Vote
The debate over the Charlotte Future 2040 Comprehensive Plan reached meme status during the latest City Council meeting as Mayor Vi Lyles tried to keep things on track.
The single-family zoning aspect of the plan has been at the forefront, and it narrowly advanced as the plan continues to go through the draft process before a final City Council vote on June 21.
A new draft was released Thursday, opening a two-week window for public comment. "The next two weeks are very critical," assistant city manager Taiwo Jaiyeoba said.
What are the next steps, and what other planks have been overshadowed by the clamor over zoning?
