Community Development is responsible to the Board of Directors for activities and projects which lead towards improvement of the physical and environmental elements of the community so that it will become a better and more attractive place in which to live, work, shop, and invest.
The Chamber is partnering with other local groups with similar goals to work collaboratively towards positive outcomes.
Possible projects considered for 2020 are:
Lenoir 2020 Mission
To convince businesses and industries located here to expand their existing operations and recruit new businesses and industries to locate here. To make our city and county attractive to diverse group of residents, visitors and new comers of all generations so they and those who work and manage our businesses and industries choose to live, shop and prosper here.
Lenoir 2020 works to identify gaps that were prioritized as: education, public safety housing and amenities, technology, infrastructure, energy and internet, transportation, jobs, tourism and religion. The committee chose to research the top four topics. A Vision Task Force was formed to develop a positive community image campaign to promote business and education in our community
When you shop locally, the sales tax dollars from your purchases go back into making our communities greater. Those sales tax dollars help fund our roads, parks, schools, fire departments and more. In Lenoir County, those projects add up to more than $12 million. So shop here, buy here and help us keep Lenoir County a place where families and business can prosper.
