Green Growth Toolbox

Green Growth Toolbox Map

Green Growth Toolbox is a program out of the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission that provides guidance to local governments in managing growth and development in ways that also conserve wildlife and natural resources. In 2015, Cabarrus Soil and Water Conservation District received funding through their Partners for Green Growth initiative, allowing for the creation of a Natural Resources Conservation Design Guide specific to Cabarrus County. The guide was produced through a collaborative process involving stakeholders from the conservation, planning, and development communities. It highlights Cabarrus County’s valuable natural resources, including the location of “Priority Natural Communities” as identified by stakeholders. The guide culminates in research-based recommendations and model ordinances for growth and development that incentivize the protection of Cabarrus County’s wildlife and natural resources.
