Charlotte Real Estate Talk: Taiwo Jaiyeoba

Good roads and good schools have traditionally been two key factors in a city’s growth, and now more than ever, Transit is taking its place as another, very important part of shaping a city’s development.

Our guest on Charlotte Real Estate Talk has an important job in that regard — as Director of Planning for the City of Charlotte. Taiwo Jaiyeoba oversees the direction of growth in the Queen City, and has the Herculean task of revamping the city’s development codes. But he brings an important perspective to the office, with a background of 25 years in transit. His appointment to the planning director’s job this year is a strong statement about how Charlotte city leaders envision the city’s growth.
