Upcoming Events and Engagement Opportunities


Navigating City Services - Charlotte Water  | Tuesday, June 28, 6 to 7:30 p.m.


Did you know that Charlotte Water does more than just bill residents for water usage? Join us on June 28, as Charlotte Water representatives share an overview of Charlotte Water and how they serve the community, key tips and tricks for leak detection, and other important water service information. Representatives from CharMeck 311 will also share how they support Charlotte Water customers. There will be a Q&A following the presentations.


This workshop will take place via Zoom. Registration is required. Online and call-in access instructions will be emailed to registered participants prior to the workshop.



Unified Development Ordinance Community Engagement 


The City of Charlotte’s Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) is a set of regulations designed to guide our city’s future development. This city-wide effort will update and combine the regulations that guide growth and development in Charlotte into one document. The UDO includes standards for zoning, stormwater, trees, streets and infrastructure. The UDO will be the primary tool to implement the Charlotte Future 2040 Plan and other adopted plans and policies through development regulations. Learn more about how the UDO could impact existing neighborhoods, new neighborhoods, existing businesses, and new development. 


The Unified Development Ordinance Second Draft also referred to as the public hearing draft was released on June 3, 2022. Over the next several weeks Planning staff will host public engagement efforts including, virtual updates sessions, an in-person open house (at the Charlotte Mecklenburg Government Center), and virtual office hours to gain feedback from the community.

Mecklenburg County 2023 Property Revaluation 


Mecklenburg County conducts a property revaluation every four years so assessments stay closer to the market, there’s less chance of large market increases, and the public remains educated on the process. Revaluation is the process where all property (land and buildings) within Mecklenburg County is revalued to its current market value as of an established date, in this case January 1, 2023.

Property taxes are based on the market value of your property. Without periodic revaluation, some property owners would pay more than their share of property tax while others would pay less than their share. Revaluation resets property tax values so all taxpayers pay their fair share.

2023 Property Revaluation Important Dates

  • January 1, 2023: Countywide Revaluation Effective Date

  • January 23, 2023: Notice of January 2023 Real Estate Assessed Value Mailed

  • July 2023: Tax Bill Mailing
