Community/School Info


The Center City is one of Charlotte’s most vibrant and diverse neighborhoods made up of individual residential areas (First, Second, Third and Fourth Wards Uptown and Historic South End). Each has its own distinct history, character and uniqueness. Residents of these neighborhoods work to preserve their distinctiveness and enhance their community through their own neighborhood associations. The Center City residential population is approaching 20,000. One of our core missions is to work with all Center City neighborhood associations. We are dedicated to building strong center city neighborhoods and enhancing constituent services for residents through communications and advocacy. We also help our neighborhoods connect with each other. We are working with neighborhoods on initiatives including parks, education, events, public safety, parking, lighting and gardens. You can find updated news and information about Center City and Historic South End neighborhoods in the Media/PR section of the website.
