Overview

In 2013, the Charlotte City Council approved the Community Investment Plan (CIP), a comprehensive program for capital improvement projects across the city over the ensuing decade. The plan specified improvements to transportation corridors and neighborhoods and building workforce housing. Funding for the CIP comes primarily from issuing bonds with the approval of city voters. Below are the results of past bonds referenda in the planning cycle:
