City of Charlotte Non-Residential Building Code Ordinance Update

Public Input Sessions

The City of Charlotte’s Great Neighborhoods Committee is in the process of reviewing and evaluating the city’s current Non-Residential Building Code (NRBC) Ordinance. The NRBC Ordinance addresses interior, exterior, and property maintenance standards for commercial businesses. The NRBC ordinance was created in 2009 and has not been reviewed since it was originally passed by Charlotte City Council. 

Violations to the NRBC Ordinance can range from buildings open to vagrants and criminal activity to broken windows or major structural issues. If commercial buildings are not properly maintained, they can have a negative impact on surrounding neighborhoods and businesses. Therefore, the City of Charlotte is seeking community input for the review and evaluation of the ordinance through four virtual meetings and an online survey.


  • Wednesday, February 24, 6 p.m.
  • Friday, February 26, 10:30 a.m.
  • Wednesday, March 3, 1:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, March 4, 6 p.m.

Those interested in participating can register here. If you are unable to participate in the virtual meetings but would like to provide input, please complete this brief online survey which includes an opportunity to provide open-ended comments.
