At its May 6 meeting, Planning Commission members were treated to a seminar on community outreach by Ravi Venkataraman, Richmond town planner. Richmond and Charlotte share similarities and differences.
After years of work, the final two public comment hearings regarding proposed amendments to the Charlotte Town Plan and Land Use Regulations take place in the coming days. On Friday, Jan. 22 at 6 p.m. and Monday, Jan. 25 at 6 p.m, Charlotte residents will have their last opportunities before the Town Meeting Day vote to weigh in on potential LUR changes.
An amendment to the Town Plan is on the Nov. 5 ballot. Before anyone’s eyes start glazing over, an explainer is in order: What is the town plan? Why is it being amended? What does this have to do with Charlotte, and why do we need to vote on it?
