Prosperity Hucks Area Plan
City Staff attended the Mallard Creek Community Association meeting on Thursday evening, March 27 to discuss the draft Prosperity-Hucks Area Plan.  Approximately 250 people attended the meeting, voicing considerable interest in further discussion and potential changes to the draft plan.
Highlights of questions and concerns at the meeting were:
  • amount of apartments in the plan area
  • traffic congestion
  • need for schools and open space
  • clarity of plan recommendations
Staff believes that more conversations need to take place prior to Public Comments or other consideration of the plan by City Council. We are formulating a schedule for additional input, and will share it on this website and by other means as soon as it is available.

The Draft Prosperity Hucks Area Plan is here. It reflects changes made as a result of comments at the meeting on August 8, 2013, as well as other comments received since that time. It includes information on market forces, crime, and traffic impacts.


Street Names: A reconsideration of street names within the Village Center has occurred independent of this plan. Current street names are in the attached map; the street names will be incorporated in the final document

City Council Public Comment: The Public Comment previously announced for February 24 was deferred pending further discussion and resolution of concerns expressed by some citizens. Announcements of further activities will be noted here, and postcard notification will be mailed when City Council Public Comment is rescheduled.


An area plan is a policy document that provides the framework for future growth and development and serves as guidance for elected officials when making land use decisions. The Plan recommends changes in the future use of property within the area. See map above for the plan boundary.

Area Plan Purpose
An area plan is a policy document that provides the framework for future growth and development within its specific geography. The plan will update portions of previously adopted area plans and will serve as a guide for elected and appointed officials when making land use, zoning, and capital investment decisions.

Prosperity Hucks Area Plan Boundary
The City of Charlotte is developing an area plan for the Prosperity Hucks area (see boundary map above) which will serve as a policy guide for future growth and development.

  • The plan includes the emerging Prosperity Church Road Mixed Use Center where Prosperity Church Road intersects I-485. The 1999 Prosperity Church Road Villages Plan called for this to be a mixed use pedestrian-oriented village. This plan process will review that recommendation and determine an appropriate size and boundary for the village.
  • The plan area also includes a number of established and emerging neighborhoods. The plan will explore measures to preserve and protect these neighborhoods, while providing for any particular needed improvements.
  • The plan will review existing and proposed street network to facilitate safety, accessibility, and efficiency.

Public Involvement
It is important for area residents, property owners, business owners and other interested persons to participate in the plan development process and assist in developing the vision that will help shape future development in the area.

Property owners, please be advised that the area plan could recommend a change in the future use of land within the study area.
