town planning

Last week I spoke with members of the GroWNC Consortium, and found out that this project - now in it's 14th month of work - was formed thanks to Federal grant. The purpose of GroWNC is to look into the future of a five-county section of Western North Carolina and to create a plan- or a footprint - for a plan to grow the area's economies, governments, schools, small businesses, residents' lifestyles, and opportunities.
