About the Event
Join Rutherford County leadership for community workshops to help update the county’s comprehensive plan. The workshops will include information about how current growth trends will impact the quality of life in the county and provide an opportunity for you to be a "planner for the day" by telling us where and how you think the county should grow. Each workshop will have two start times to choose from, 5:30 p.m. or 6:00 p.m.
PlanRutherford was launched in 2022 to provide an opportunity for members of the public to work with their community leaders to address challenges related to recent growth while preparing the county for the future. Rutherford County’s population has increased by nearly 700 people per month since 2010 and is projected to exceed half a million people by 2045. Determining where residents will live, work, and go to school is a key component of the countywide comprehensive plan. Input received throughout this process will inform recommendations for land use policies, economic development strategies, open space priorities, and capital improvement programs aimed at addressing traffic congestion, local school capacity, and other government services and utilities.
The town hall will offer attendees a chance to review and comment on the initial findings from prior community meetings and learn more about regional growth forecasts and the possible opportunities and challenges that will come with the anticipated change.
