What's ahead for Charlotte in 2022?
We’ve made it through the roller coaster that was 2021 in Charlotte city government.
We saw drama during the process of passing the Charlotte Future 2040 Comprehensive Plan, with infighting between Cty Council members that even caused the mayor to cut one council meeting short.
There have been several departures of department heads in high-profile city departments that may impact local initiatives.
We also saw the announcement of a new racial equity initiative, the continuing effects of COVID-19, election schedule shakeups and much more.
With a year like 2021, what’s ahead for 2022?
