July 26, 2017

Downtown merchants, city leaders and county officials gathered inside the Fellowship Hall at First United Methodist Church on Tuesday evening for a community vision forum hosted by the City of Lincolnton Steering Committee. The steering committee, founded with the intent of streamlining efforts between local government, support organizations and citizens to advance city objectives, is working with representatives from the North Carolina Main Street program to develop a revitalization plan for the downtown area. The committee organized the forum to gather input from local stakeholders before forming an economic positioning statement for the future of downtown Lincolnton. “I’ve always believed that if you plan to work and work to plan then you’ll get good results,” steering committee chairman Fred Jarrett said.
