Elizabeth Neighborhood!

Elizabeth Community Award For Excellence

Congratulations, Elizabeth! Your new Small Area Plan won an “Award  for Excellence” from the American Planning Association, one of two awarded nationwide. Jurors from across the U.S. called the ESAP a “thorough analysis of the opportunities, challenges, goals, and vision for the community… [that] provides succinct direction for land use, transportation, community design, infrastructure and public facilities, and environmental policies… a stakeholder group was integral.

“Thanks to the residents and city/county staffers who gave countless hours to this project and to Andy Misiaveg (Historic Elizabeth Neighborhood Foundation) and Alan Goodwin (Charlotte/Mecklenburg Planning Department) for their leadership.
