CONNECT Our Future is holding county open forums throughout 14 different counties, including Anson. The goal of the forums is to “collaborate with residents from around the greater Charlotte region to create a shared growth plan for our future,” according to a press release.

Four growth options based on input from residents, local governments, businesses and other organizations during the last 18 months will be presented at the forums. Citizens who attend current forums will have the chance to consider each option and respond with their own thoughts, according to the website.

The 14-county forums will begin with Iredell County on March 6. The forum for Anson County will be held on March 11. Attendees can visit the forum anytime from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Presentations will be held at 10:15 a.m., 12:15 p.m. and 2:15 p.m.
