Over the last 25 years, the population of Union County, North Carolina exploded. At times, Union County was the fastest growing county in North Carolina and among the nation’s fastest. While the percentage growth rate has slowed somewhat in recent years, the raw number of new residents has not. Knowing that growth will continue, the Union County Board of Commissioners set out to establish a 30 year vision of what Union County will be, and turned to a diverse group of residents, business leaders, non-profit organizations and other stakeholders to plot the County’s course.
