Assistant City Manager/Director of Planning, Design & Development | City of Charlotte
When Taiwo Jaiyeoba says he’s shaping the future of Charlotte, you can take him at his word. (And, it’s not just because he has 7 daughters.) As the City of Charlotte’s Director of Planning, Design & Development, Taiwo and his team are leading the charge on the Charlotte 2040 plans reshaping zoning codes and land use.
In his new, additional role as Assistant City Manager, Taiwo will be taking on even more. Taiwo is addressing CreativeMornings/Charlotte this Friday, Oct. 11, speaking on the global topic of “Flow.” But, before he hits the stage at Ovens Auditorium, we took a few minutes to ask one of the smartest cats in the Queen City five ridiculous questions.
