GroWNC - Land-of-Sky COG
GroWNC, Western North Carolina’s Livable Communities Initiative, is a three-year project to develop regional and local strategies for economic prosperity, quality growth and sustainable development. A consortium of local governments, nonprofit organizations and businesses will seek significant input from residents of the region, gather existing and historical data, and synthesize it to create a vision of the future. Together we will draw on existing plans and strategies to develop a plan to foster economic prosperity through a regional vision that identifies implementable projects and actions. The project will include significant public outreach and involvement.
GroWNC will allow local governments, businesses, nonprofits, citizens and others to realize unprecedented regional coordination on jobs, energy, housing, transportation, resources and other interconnected issues. This will foster more prosperous, livable communities in our region through new quality jobs, new investment, diverse economic development strategies, energy and financial savings, and carbon emission reductions.
