Join us for the launch of NCGrowth’s Blueway Guide! This guide provides communities the tools they need to leverage waterways for economic development and increased quality of life. Blueways are marked routes, on rivers, lakes canals or coastlines for recreational use. The Blueway Guide provides specific considerations for planning and building blueways as well as strategies to connect local businesses. This resource can be shared amongst stakeholders to help generate buy-in.
Speakers will include outdoor industry businesses, economic development professionals and community leaders.
Co-hosted by the North Carolina Office of the US Economic Development Administration and the North Carolina Outdoor Recreation Industry Office at the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina.
Carolyn Fryberger, NCGrowth Assistant Director of Economic Development
