December 1, 2017

As hundreds of Kannapolis officials, business people and residents celebrated the kickoff of the city’s Downtown Revitalization Project during a ceremony Thursday morning, Mayor Darrell Hinnant told them Kannapolis is rising from the ashes. “In some sense we will be like that mythological phoenix that is that beautiful bird that rises from the ashes. We are going to be that beautiful community that rises from the places that used to be vibrant and actionable and alive,” Hinnant said. “It is our community. It is your community. It is all of us as we move forward and connect and celebrate.”
