Current Planning

Staff provides background information and profession recommendations to the Planning Board and Board of Commission to help them make informed recommendations and decisions.

Staff also determinates the relationships between planned developments, plans for growth, and mitigates the environmental impact around us. Other factors taken into consideration when planning for the community include the Flood Hazard and Watershed areas.

In March of 2009, the Board of County Commissioners adopted the Carolina Thread Trail Master Plan for Gaston County. The Carolina Thread Trail is a regional network of connected greenways and trails that extend over 15 counties, two states, and is accessible by 2.9 million people. A map of the accessible trails can be found here. The cities and towns in Gaston County continuously work together to build out the trail network.
