Sunday Speaker: A Vision for Charlotte 2040

Nov, 3, 2019

Taiwo Jaiyeoba, Director of Planning, Design and Development for the City of Charlotte, comes to First Presbyterian on Sunday, November 3. Join us as we embrace the needs of our city and discern the direction of our ministry over the next 20 years in this free program.

Jaiyeoba will share the status of the city’s 2040 Comprehensive Plan. The plan will guide what projects the city approves, where development can occur, and what neighborhoods will look like at the end of the next stage of the city’s growth. It will also help define what Charlotte aspires to be. Get a taste of what to expect in this episode of the Faith Unfiltered podcast.

The program and dinner will be in Wood Fellowship Hall, 5:30-7:30 p.m. Registration will begin in October. Programming for children and youth, as well as nursery care, will be available.

Before coming to Charlotte in 2018, Jaiyeoba worked as a consultant and planner for cities in Botswana, as well as Sacramento, California, and Atlanta. A native of Nigeria who came to the U.S. in 1996, he is charged with planning how to handle Charlotte’s growth.

Mr. Jaiyeoba will provide the key objectives for the plan and will highlight some transformative recommendations such as zoning changes.

A panel including Mr. Jaiyeoba, CMS Superintendent Earnest Winston, and Habitat for Humanity CEO & President Laura Belcher will follow, with information on needs in their respective areas and ways they might be addressed in the future.
