Creating a Shared Upstate Vision
Ten Counties, One Upstate, Your Voice Matters

Upstate SCWhat matters most to you when thinking about the future of South Carolina's Upstate Region?

Over the next year, Ten at the Top will use input from residents, community leaders and elected officials to develop a "Shared Upstate Vision and Implementation Strategy" that illustrates what is important to residents in a region that is projected to add 234,000 new residents and 203,000 new jobs over the next 20 years.

The four step process will include a 'Public Input Survey' that will be available for all residents in either electronic or printed form from May 10-31.

Get more detail and check out the full strategy for Creating a Shared Upstate Vision.
