  • The vitality of North Carolina depends on strong and vibrant regions. Regions are the interconnected places where people live, work, and recreate. They are also the places where local government problems like environmental protection, traffic, and solid waste spill across municipal boundaries and become shared concerns. More and more one hears the opinion that independent but interrelated places must develop the capacity to work together if these problems are to be addressed and a desired future is to be secured. To paraphrase an old saying about the United Nations, if regions didn't exist, we would have to create them.
