The Western Piedmont Council of Governments (WPCOG) was contracted by Alexander County Government to facilitate the community planning process, in cooperation with Jon Pilkenton, Alexander County Director of Planning and Development; county staff; and the advisory committee.
Pilkenton estimated that about 65 people attended the meeting to help provide input on needs and plans for the future of Bethlehem. A large portion of the public meeting included conducting a SWOT analysis (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats).
Information from the meeting will be examined and utilized as the Bethlehem Community Plan Advisory Committee continues the planning process. The plan is to be completed by September 2019.
The next advisory committee meeting will be held on January 24. Please note that this meeting is not a public input session.
