Myth: “The rezoning recommendation regarding single-family housing will accelerate gentrification and displacement in vulnerable neighborhoods.”

A:

Gentrification has occurred rapidly in Charlotte during the years we have not had a comprehensive plan. While no plan will eliminate gentrification and displacement entirely, The Charlotte Future 2040 Comprehensive Plan recognizes and addresses the issue of displacement by introducing  anti-displacement tools including empowering community benefits agreements and the creation of  a community-based, anti-displacement taskforce.  Further, increasing the available supply of housing of any kind will promote naturally occurring affordable housing (NOAH).
