CABARRUS COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -

The first of 58 county-wide wayfinding signs was unveiled in Concord Thursday.

The project aims to "increase traveler confidence and connectivity to downtown areas as they explore the destination" and is headed by the Cabarrus County Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB).

“The goal is to improve connectivity while creating a sense of place,” said Cabarrus County Convention & Visitors Bureau President and CEO Donna Carpenter. “With that comes a more dynamic experience and increased visitor spending which translates to tax revenues and greater quality of life for citizens.”

Visitors in Cabarrus County spent $433.03 million in 2016, and the county ranks 12th in travel impact among the state’s 100 counties, according to Visit North Carolina.

The wayfinding system was a collaborative effort between the CVB, county officials, and a committee composed of representatives from each of the five municipalities. 

The remaining 57 signs are set to be installed within the next 30 days.

    Some landowners believe the problem stems from the fact that Lincoln County does not have a stormwater ordinance, which is why they say they've seen an overflow of runoff water since the start of this development.
