The investment of time, treasure and talent in order to adjust Troutman's future land-use plan presented and adopted at Thursday’s Town Council meeting was worth making.
Stantec, along with town staff members, provided many different opportunities and methods for the community to participate fully, and the results are a future plan we can be proud of. By combining the input and vision of many throughout the community with professional planning principles, our town now has a guide to direct the future growth of our great small town.
I am very thankful to have been a small part of it, and look forward to smart and intentional growth along with the preservation of what makes Troutman so very special – our rural flavor!
A big thank you to Scott, Dylan and Walter at Stantec; Planning Director Erika Martin; the steering committee; and everyone who participated along the way!
The year 2018 has had its challenges, I look forward to 2019 and see good things on the horizon.
