Ecoimpact Partner, Summer Minchew, has been selected to participate in the development of the Mecklenburg Livable Communities Plan. The Plan will describe the vision for quality of life in our region now and well into the future. Five citizen workgroups will break down previously siloed efforts by various cities and municipalities to create a cohesive Vision and Plan for Mecklenburg County. Striving to create a more sustainable future, citizen workgroups will address topics including: the built environment, economy and jobs, community life, and healthy living. The Plan is scheduled for adoption in early 2015.
