Charlotte is one of the fastest growing cities in the nation and is a leader in mobility planning and investment that integrates land use with multi-modal transportation choices. In 2021, the City of Charlotte adopted an ambitious vision, the Charlotte Future 2040 Comprehensive Plan (Comprehensive Plan), and recently adopted a Strategic Mobility Plan, which expands on the Comprehensive Plan’s goal of creating Safe and Equitable Mobility. The City is actively implementing those plans along with several other key initiatives, including a new Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) and supporting documents such as the Charlotte Streets Map and Streets Manual.
The Charlotte Department of Transportation is a leader in progressive transportation and is seeking a talented individual to work on a wide variety of plans, policies, and projects to support Charlotte’s continued evolution into a city whose residents, workers, and visitors can travel throughout the community safely, whether they are walking, bicycling, using transit, or driving.
The Transportation Planner II position is housed in the newly formed Strategic Mobility Division of the Charlotte Department of Transportation (CDOT) and is part of a multidisciplinary team responsible for planning Charlotte’s future mobility networks and investments. This team collaborates across departments, partner agencies, and the community to achieve multi-modal solutions that shape and support Charlotte’s rapid growth and development. Critical responsibilities of this Division include implementation of the Strategic Mobility Plan, the review and implementation of transportation elements in the UDO, and the development and programming of $60 to $80 million in locally funded multi-modal capital projects annually.
