The 14-county greater Charlotte region in North and South Carolina, will almost double in population, and in the number of jobs, by 2050. We are the fastest-growing large metro region in the country, and we are also the largest metro without a shared regional approach for growth. This affects our ability to compete for jobs in a global marketplace, and may affect the quality of life and access to opportunity the region’s current and future residents enjoy.
How and where should we grow? CONNECT Our Future is working with residents throughout 14 counties to get to that answer. Over 4,000 people to date have provided their ideas about what is important to them, and what needs they see for their community and the region. Even if you have not participated before, you can share your ideas about your priorities, and about four different ways this region could grow, now.
Just take 5-10 minutes to visit http://ConnectOurFuture.metroquest.com.
It’s easy to use the tool— tell us your priorities (on the Priorities page), do the star rating for each growth option (on the Consider Options pages), and to let us know what county you’re from (on the Stay Involved page), then hit Submit, and you’re done!
Help our region stay a great place for our children and grandchildren, by Growing by Choice, Not Chance! Pass this on to your friends and family members and ask them to provide their input online!!
