Steele Creek Area Plan Community Workshop is March 25

(March 19, 2010) A group of Steele Creek residents and other interested persons have been meeting with city and county staff to discuss the development of an area plan for Steele Creek. The next meeting will be a Community Workshop, which will solicit input from additional community members on the plan's concept map and the goals and policies.

The Community Workshop will be on Thursday, March 25 beginning at 6:00 PM in the Community Room at Carolinas Medical Center - Steele Creek. (CMC-Steele Creek is located at 13640 Steelecroft Parkway, just southwest of RiverGate. The Community Room is in the back right corner of the building, on the opposite side from the emergency room.)

Steele Creek PlanThe Charlotte-Mecklenburg Planning Department staff will provide an update on the process so far.

The area plan will establish an overall vision for the Steele Creek community and develop land use and transportation policies. The plan will ultimately guide property owners, developers, and elected officials in making land use and development decisions. Further, it will be used as a tool to evaluate rezoning applications and development plans, and with other city-wide initiatives, to coordinate and prioritize infrastructure service provisions and funding allocations.

The Steele Creek Area Plan will update the city's future land use map that shows a specific future land use recommendation for every parcel of land within the city’s jurisdiction. This map provides guidance for future development. The plan may change the future land use recommendations for some parcels, but it will not affect how property is currently used or the zoning of property. It will only provide guidance for future development.

The final plan will be presented to the Charlotte City Council for approval later this year.

If you have any questions, please contact Melony McCullough (mmccullough@charlottenc.gov ) or Brent Wilkinson (bwilkinson@charlottenc.gov) of the Charlotte-Medklenburg Planning Department at 704-336-2205 or visit
the Steele Creek Area Plan web page.

Your active participation and continued work will help fulfill the vision for the Steele Creek Community.
