CHARLOTTE, NC- The City of Charlotte is accepting applications for new advisory commissions. Residents who are interested in addressing community priorities can register through Aug. 27.

The City of Charlotte is announcing three new commissions to advise the city key community priorities: limiting displacement, equitable development, and promoting arts and culture. Charlotte residents who are passionate to represent their community in these three areas can register to the Office of the City Clerk. Applications are accepted until Aug. 27. Successful applicants will be nominated and residents of Charlotte will vote for the new advisory commission members in City Council in September.

Charlotte Equitable Development Commission is seeking new members who will advise the city on balance equitable investments in Charlotte. The new members must have comprehensive knowledge in each area of Charlotte that has insufficient infrastructure, areas experiencing the fastest growth, and areas that can be targeted for growth.

On the other hand, Charlotte’s Neighborhood Equity and Stabilization (NEST) Commission is accepting new members who can bring input to strategies for affordable housing and limiting displacement. The commission prefers someone with experience of displacement, urban planning, land use, and housing finance experts, Charlotteans who work as neighborhood leaders, real estate developers, and housing advocates are encouraged to apply.

The Arts and Culture Advisory Board has a definitive target to grow the sector into a sustainable and diverse industry. The new member is expected to formulate strategies in order to create jobs in the art and culture section, raise Charlotte’s profile as a destination, and address issues such as education and workforce development. Successful applicants will also determine the allocating budget of the fiscal years of 2022, 2023, 2024 to arts and culture funding.
