The Growing Better Places: A More Equitable and Inclusive Charlotte game is a component of the Charlotte Future 2040 Comprehensive Plan process. It's a fun, interactive way to get input from a diverse cross-section of the community about the future of Charlotte. Growing Better Places is designed to be played by everyone.
The Growing Better Places game is about better understanding the needs and impacts of growth and change citywide.
Game purpose and objectives:
Fill existing gaps in infrastructure and amenities that could complete several of Charlotte's neighborhoods
Ensure that new development results in benefits for existing and new residents and that neighborhoods align with the community vision and goals expressed throughout Phase 1 of the Comprehensive Plan process
Allocate the projected number of housing units and jobs for Charlotte in 2040
Ensure that the path to creating complete neighborhoods for all Charlotteans is equitable, economically viable and fiscally responsible
The results of each game will be recorded by the players and used to create growth scenario models that will be discussed with the public this fall.
Encourage community member discussion about growth and trade-offs
Have fun! There are no right or wrong answers or ways to play the game, so have fun and enjoy a lively discussion with your group.
