New US 74 Bypass and Washburn Switch Interchange Small Area Plan
PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE
The City of Shelby and Cleveland County are focusing on the development associated with the interchanges of the new US 74 Bypass. The Washburn Switch Interchange is the first of five interchanges and small area plans. This is part of the small area plans being developed for the new US 74 Bypass.
SHELBY, NC – JUNE 12, 2014 – A public open house for the Washburn Switch Interchange Small Area Plan (WSISAP) will be held on Tuesday, July 8 from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM at the Shelby City Park (850 W Sumter St, Shelby, NC 28150). Small area plans examine the local conditions and address a specific area’s needs and opportunities with detailed recommendations. They provide a collaborative process for citizens to work together to improve their neighborhood and ensure a better future.
The intention of this small area plan is to get ahead of the curve as to what kind of change might take place with the development associated with the interchanges of the new US 74 Bypass and to figure out a strategy for how that change should happen over time. With your participation at the open house, we can achieve this.
The open house will be held in the Aquatics Conference Room at the Shelby City Park. The event will begin with a review of the planning process and the findings to date. The leadership team will then facilitate an engaging and interactive discussion with the participants to gather input on future development in the Washburn Switch study area. This open house is a chance for the public to join friends and neighbors for a discussion about the new US 74 Bypass and the potential development it will bring to surrounding areas. We will work together to develop a plan for the future.
The community needs YOU to join the conversation, share your ideas, and engage with your neighbors now! We hope to see you there!
