Project Scope

The two-day workshop held January 26-27, 2023 was the first step towards the economic development initiatives in Plymouth. The discussion among the Town of Plymouth elected officials, business owners, community organizations, and educators, CPNI team and NCGrowth went on for 3 hours and included topics like Plymouth problems, education, employment, and downtown revitalization. Jessica, from NCGrowth gave an overview of Plymouth demography, population, gender distribution, education, employment, housing etc. This information led to a more detailed discussion about challenges and the desires of Plymouth residents. The discussion turned into a debate regarding the current and future priorities of Plymouth. Grant usage took precedence over other discussions like education and employment opportunities for young adults and the structural and infrastructure development for Plymouth riverfront and downtown since Plymouth has limited time left to utilize it.
