Pitt County residents will have one more chance to share their visions for rebuilding their communities following Hurricane Matthew at 6 p.m. today at the Pitt County Agricultural Center.
The meeting is part of the North Carolina Resilient Redevelopment Planning program, established by the General Assembly to create a roadmap for community rebuilding and revitalization assistance for the communities affected by Hurricane Matthew, which brought flooding to Pitt and other eastern North Carolina counties in October.
The program aims to empower communities across the state to prepare locally driven recovery plans to identify redevelopment strategies, innovative reconstruction projects and other needed actions. These redevelopment plans will be finalized in May.
Today's meeting is the last of three sessions to discuss the development of Pitt County's Resilient Redevelopment Plan.
Organizers will collect any remaining feedback on the draft resilience strategies developed for the county, focusing on the areas of housing, economic development, infrastructure and the environment.
The feedback will be incorporated in the final comments received into the county's draft Resilient Redevelopment Plan.
