Unprecedented growth is coming to eastern North Carolina as one million new residents will call our region home by 2050! If we don’t plan for this growth, we’re likely to see strained infrastructure, fiscal instability, impacts on the environment, loss of military bases and agricultural lands, and significant changes to our quality of life.
EnvisionEAST-2050 is a one-day visioning exercise that engages 300 diverse stakeholders from across our region to tackle how best to accommodate this explosive growth.
Participants will work in diverse groups to discuss regional population and job growth, and make suggestions about where housing and jobs should locate across our region over the next 35 years. To ensure that a broad, inclusive group is chosen to participate in this visioning exercise, EnvisionEAST-2050 is calling for nominations and applications of interested parties from across our region. Admission is free but limited to 300 participants. For applications to participate, sponsorship forms or more information, please visit www.planiteast.org/envisioneast-2050.
