Charlotte Strategic Parking Plan

The Charlotte Department of Transportation (CDOT) is currently developing a Strategic Parking Plan for South End and Uptown, which will recommend ways to efficiently manage the curb lane and balance competing demands for access, including loading and parking needs, with the safe and comfortable movement of people and goods.


The goals of the Strategic Parking Plan are to:

  • ENHANCE the parking and curb lane management experience for residents, business owners, customers, and visitors.
  • ADVANCE our parking and curb lane management system to an industry-leading program that integrates parking and mobility options.
  • PROMOTE community-centric and data-driven outcomes that support neighborhood and resident goals and interests.
  • BALANCE and support walking, biking, transit, and vehicular access with the growing demand for curb lane access.
  • MAXIMIZE the efficiency and use of on-and off-street parking assets to strengthen business and economic vitality.


PARKING PROGRAM OVERVIEW                                                                                                 

The Charlotte Department of Transportation (CDOT) is responsible for the administration of the On-Street Parking and Curb Lane Management Program, including curb lane compliance of all on-street parking (metered and non-metered spaces), the residential parking permit program, and loading zones. Included within the program are five managed parking districts comprised of the following areas:  Uptown, South End, Plaza Midwood, Elizabeth, and NoDa.

The management of daily operations includes providing customer service, enforcement of parking regulations, monitoring the city’s commercial and passenger vehicle loading zones, conducting special event enforcement, and managing the maintenance of parking meters, equipment, and signage.
