Once the draft plan is complete, the area plan review and adoption process begins. To become official City policy, the plan must be adopted by City Council. City Council considers the recommendations of several bodies, including the Planning Committee of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Planning Commission and City Council Committee, when deciding whether or not to adopt an area plan. They also consider public comments, as well as comments from other boards and agencies, including the Mecklenburg County Board of County Commissioners and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School Board.
