The Board has set "Vision 2015" as a road map for what they want the County to look like seven years from now. The Board's vision is summed up in the following statement:
"In 2015, Mecklenburg County will be a community of pride and choice
for people to LIVE, WORK and RECREATE."
There are 14 elements in the vision statement, ranging from affordable housing to protecting natural resources. Key elements are grouped into four related areas, called Focus Areas. All programs and services provided by Mecklenburg County fall into one of these Focus Areas:
- Community Health & Safety
- Effective & Efficient Government
- Social, Education & Economic Opportunity
- Growth Management & Environment
