Our two-state, 14-county region is expected to grow by another 1.8 million people and 860,000 jobs by 2050. Regional leaders are working to ensure that Anson County and the rest of the area are ready. The goal is to plan and change by local choice – not by chance. That’s the purpose of CONNECT Our Future.

The map you develop at your Community Growth Workshop—along with all the other maps from the other 13 counties—will be combined with the input already gathered across the region. From all the ideas shared, four or five possible scenarios for the growth of our region will be created. These scenarios will reflect the different perspectives that people have shared across the region.
In the spring and summer of 2014, residents from the region will again be asked for their input—this time about which of the alternative growth scenarios they prefer.
