Listening tour seeks ideas for business development and job growth

How can county government help as the community collectively works toward economic recovery? The public is invited to suggest ideas to answer this question at any of three stops on the Cabarrus County listening tour.

Business owners are encouraged to share ideas of potential changes to Cabarrus County regulations that could prove beneficial to business growth. County residents are invited to make suggestions for county regulation changes that may help increase employment and job growth.

This regulation reform listening tour is coordinated by the Cabarrus County Council for a Sustainable Local Economy (CSLE). The CSLE will compile results and make recommendations to the Cabarrus County Board of Commissioners based on community input.

The public is invited to any of the three forums:

·         February, 16 at 6:30 p.m. – Kannapolis Train Station, 201 S. Main Street, Kannapolis

·         February 23 at 6:30 p.m. – Vintage Motorclub, 325 McGill Avenue, Concord

·         February 28 at 6:30 p.m. – Buddy’s Restaurant, 1470 S. Main Street, Mt. Pleasant
