§                     Recommendations by the Legacy Commission include changing street names and reimagining civic spaces to create a new symbolic landscape that is representative of the dynamic and diverse city Charlotte has become and reflective of the inclusive vision it strives to achieve.

§                     Public input is being requested on the recommendations to City Council presented by the Legacy Commission.

 

Background

§                     In January 2020, the Legacy Commission was established with the charge of engaging in a comprehensive study of street names and monuments in the City of Charlotte that honor a legacy of Confederate soldiers, slaveowners, and segregationists.

§                     The Legacy Commission developed its recommendations for City Council through a detailed historical examination of the naming of streets and monuments and a detailed historical explanation of all recommended changes.

§                     Public input was collected through surveys.
