The Charlotte Streets Manual (Streets Manual) provides supporting transportation-related information necessary for implementing the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO). Specifically, the Streets Manual includes technical documentation and/or guidance for the following components:
Charlotte Streets Map
Access Management and Driveway Design
Comprehensive Transportation Review Guidelines
The second draft of the Charlotte Streets Manual is now available for review from June 3 through June 30, 2022. Engagement for the Streets Manual parallels the UDO process.
The second draft reflects changes based on comments received, along with reformatting three component pieces into a single document. Those pieces include the Charlotte Streets Map (document), Driveway and Access Rules, and Comprehensive Transportation Review, which were released as separate documents for public review in Fall 2021.
The Charlotte Streets Manual second draft document notes changes from draft one as follows:
Yellow-highlighted items in the document are items that have changed from the previous version.
Non-substantive changes, made for clarity or consistency as the documents were merged, are not highlighted.
The most significant reformatting occurred in the Driveway and Access Rules portion of the document (now titled Access Management and Driveway Design), but the substantive content remains unchanged.
An Appendix has also been developed to help describe changes between the first and second drafts of the Streets Manual. The appendix table is broken down by the three components of the Streets Manual and includes both substantive changes and descriptions of non-substantive changes that were made for formatting and consistency as the individual documents were combined into a single, cohesive document.
