Caldwell 20/20 - A Foundation for the Future - Caldwell County, North Carolina

Leadership/Civic Pride

Caldwell County’s leaders recognized the need to come together to examine the realities and the opportunities that belong to Caldwell County. They agreed that developing a vision and a strategy to bridge the past to the future would require a community consensus and a dedicated, long-term plan and effort.
That effort is more than a goal. It is a process which requires ongoing development of leadership into the future and a re-generation of community pride and civic engagement.
Vision: Caldwell County will become a community that public and private leadership—and the population as a whole—will cherish and work tirelessly to sustain.
Objective 12: Grow local leadership’s capacity to affect change in Caldwell County.
Objective 13: Develop a “Youth Engagement and Empowerment Initiative.”
Objective 14: Initiate a community-branding campaign focused on raising levels of community pride and engagement.
Objective 15: Partner with CCC&TI to develop a program focused on improving the work ethic of the County’s adult population.
Objective 16: Improve local coordination, collaboration and consensus across constituencies and communities in Caldwell County.
