In 20 years who will live in Matthews? Will your business have customers? Who will they be? What types of stores and restaurants will you be able to frequent?
Will your single family home retain its value or will the new home owners desire duplexes or apartments? Will your home meet your retirement needs? Will your grown children find their dream home here?
How do we plan today so our community remains vibrant and financially stable?
The UNCC Urban Institute is working with the Town to help us understand the changing demographics of our Town population. Mary Newsom with the UNCC Urban Institute and the Plan Charlotte Initiative will be here October 18 to give us eye opening statistics on how our demographics are evolving and what changes they may produce in the Town of Matthews in 10, 20 and 30 years.
The public is invited to attend this Demographics Forum at 7 p.m. on October 18 at Matthews Town Hall.
We invite you to attend, listen and give us your input on how we can all prepare for the future population of the Town.
This event is co-sponsored by the Economic Development Advisory Committee and the Town of Matthews Planning and Development Department.
