Concerned about growth?

RAMSEUR — Randolph County is inviting residents to a public input meeting focused on the growth and development of northeast Randolph County. 


The meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 18, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Eastern Randolph High School Auditorium at 390 Eastern Randolph Road, Ramseur.


The purpose of the meeting is to gather input from the public on the county's Growth Management Plan, which was originally adopted in 2009. 


The plan guides future growth and development in northeast Randolph County and helps shape decisions made by elected officials, developers and county staff. 


Feedback from the community will be incorporated into the updated plan and subsequently shared with the Randolph County Board of Commissioners.


County Manager Hal Johnson said, "We want to hear from the community about their vision for the future of northeast Randolph County. This is an open house/walk-in style event where residents can drop in at any time between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. to share their ideas and discuss topics such as economic development, environmental quality, public infrastructure, and residential, commercial and industrial development."


The event will include an overview of the Growth Management Plan at 5:45 p.m. and 6:45 p.m. to give attendees a better understanding of the plan's focus and goals. Stations will also be set up throughout the event where residents can ask questions, provide feedback, and learn more about the county's efforts to manage growth and development sustainably and responsibly.


This is an opportunity for the community to share their ideas and help shape the future of northeast Randolph County.
