Plan of Work for Rural Development in North Carolina, July 1, 1975 - June 30, 1976.
Hyatt, George, Jr.; And Others
Serving primarily as a policy group for local Rural Development Panels, the North Carolina Rural Development Committee's major objective for 1976 is to work with local leaders, private businesses and governmental agencies at all levels in planning and implementing comprehensive rural development programs. Specifically, the Committee's objectives are to: (1) create more jobs; (2) increase the level of income; (3) provide more and better training opportunities; (4) develop better delivery systems for community services; and (5) improve the quality of environment for residents in small towns and rural areas. Major rural development activities planned for 1976 focus on: (1) Training Workshops (on health, housing, site planning, and the State Land Policy Act); (2) Environmental Improvements (land-use planning/control, solid waste disposal, agricultural waste utilization and disposal, sedimentation control, family and community sewer disposal); (3) Improving Health Care (workshops, educational material on preventive health care, a pilot program, a health directory, slide-tape); (4) Improving Housing (adoption and enforcement of building codes, regulations, etc); (5) Economic Development (stimulation of industrial growth, tourism, and agricultural income); (6) Other Activities (manpower development, community facilities, resource conservation/development, and youth involvement).
