TSW led the Southwestern North Carolina Opportunity Initiative (Opt-In) project, bringing together North Carolina’s seven westernmost counties, the 16 municipalities within, and the Sovereign Nation of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, to complete one of the most ambitious economic development, transportation, and environmental visioning efforts in the region’s history. The American Planning Association‘s Planning magazine (February 2015, Volume 81, Number 2) features the project’s two-year process and its results.
