CITY FILES REZONING PETITION
The City of Charlotte filed a rezoning petition for the former Eastland Mall property (owned by the City of Charlotte). Crosland Southeast joined the rezoning petition and has included an adjoining 8-acre parcel that it controls. The rezoning petition is the result of an extensive community outreach and engagement process between the City, Crosland SE and community stakeholders that culminated in a “Vision for Eastland.” The rezoning is the next step in bringing that vision to reality.
The current zoning districts allowed the development of a regional mall and similar intensive commercial uses, includes many different zoning districts and covers 78 acres. The proposed rezoning plan would include two zoning districts MX-2(Innovative) and MUDD-O (Mixed Use Development District-Optional).
The rezoning process will involve additional community meetings and input from many City and County departments. Based on the City’s rezoning schedule, a community meeting would likely be held sometime in March.

CITY EXTENDS CONTRACT
FOR EASTLAND REDEVELOPMENT
In late 2018, City Council authorized the City Manager to enter into a pre-development agreement with the development team. The primary function of the pre-development agreement is to assess the site conditions and guide the development process. Primary elements of the agreement include community engagement, master planning, environmental assessments, geotechnical assessment, etc.
The initial agreement lasted for 8 months, with an optional 4-month extension. The additional time is required to refine the site plan and financial analysis of the redevelopment. The partnership with Crosland Southeast remains strong.

On June 22nd, the Envision Eastland Community Engagement Team launched a public survey to get more feedback from the community as early stages of planning and design continues for redevelopment of the former Eastland Mall site. The public survey is particularly important. It is a way to ensure everyone who wants to share their thoughts has the ability to do so, whether they could participate in any of the other venues for feedback or not.
