Infrastructure & Economic Development
Henderson County is a wonderful place to live and to raise a family. However, many of our children do not return after college or joining the military because of the lack of available good-paying jobs. Therefore, more emphasis needs to be placed on:
- Attracting businesses that can provide good-paying jobs that also blend well with the small-town culture that drew many of us here.
- Be mindful of the infrastructure to support new businesses (roads, schools, water, sewer, health care, law enforcement and other first responders) and have a plan in place to make improvements where necessary.
- Continue to support advancements at Blue Ridge Community College, especially those related to industry training and job placement. This is a wonderful, but many times unknown, resource for businesses and job seekers.
