We are excited to have Mark Burrows, Director of Planning and Community Development for Transylvania County as our presenter for the June 14th Wonderful Wednesday. He is an award-winning strategic leader with broad understanding of fiscal principles and services at local, regional, and state levels. Mark is an astute professional known as an innovator and advocate for economic sustainability. He performed a pivotal role in the County’s recovery from the 2002 closure of 3 manufacturing plants resulting in a loss of 2,000 jobs. He is also a long-distance mountain trail runner!
The title of his presentation is: Transylvania County: Looking to the Future. Through graphics and maps he will discuss current and future action steps identified in the 2025 Transylvania County Comprehensive Plan. He will also focus on issues of equity and current efforts to promote greater community awareness and dialogue.
The program will begin at 6:30. What are your hopes and dreams for our beloved Transylvania County?
