Updates Take Effect for Charlotte Land Development Standards Manual (CLDSM)

The most recent set of revisions to the Charlotte Land Development Standards Manual (CLDSM) went into effect July 31st, and are available online for review.

A PDF file is available that contains just the updated pages from the CLDSM, and all of the detail drawings are also available in DWG format.

Special Note:  Some additional changes were made as a result of user comments during the review and comment period through the month of July:

  • Sidewalk cross-slope is now labeled throughout the manual as 1.5% (2.00% MAX)
  • A table entitled Example Sidewalk Construction Dimensions was added to page 9 of the Notes and Special Provisions section, as well as detail 10.22, “Concrete Sidewalks”
  • Accessible ramp running slope is now labeled throughout the manual as 7.5% (8.33% MAX)
  • An additional isometric view showing alternative ramp styles was added to detail 10.35A, “Standard Placement of Accessible Ramp and General Notes”
  • Reminder: previous details 11.01, 11.03, 11.04, 11.05, 11.06, 11.08, 11.10, 11.11, and 11.12 are no longer needed and were removed from the CLDSM.
