Community gives input for Elkin’s future

December 14, 2018

In two days last week, community members floated in and out of sessions designed to allow them to have input on how they would like to see Elkin’s future develop and grow. The input sessions are part of the master plan development process being overseen by WithersRavenel, who was contracted with the town of Elkin. The master plan itself is part of the recommendations from Explore Elkin’s initiatives and will address topics such as appearances at the gateways into town, future housing needs, development downtown and along the Yadkin River and Big Elkin Creek. “I lived in town for 20-plus years before moving to Thurmond,” said Cynthia Douglas, who still works in town at G&B Energy. “I just came to see what kind of things people are interested in to see Elkin prosper.”
