ROSEBORO — Professionals from Charlotte, Raleigh and Greensboro will be visiting with the town of Roseboro this week to discuss strategies to put vacant and underutilized buildings and other facilities to more productive use.
The Construction Professional Network Institute (CPNI), a non-profit initiative that volunteers and offers design and construction direction to communities in North Carolina, will hold an informational workshop Thursday and Friday in town hall. The workshop will be from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Thursday and at 9 a.m. Friday.
Volunteers will present strategies the town or local property and business owners can use to make the most out of their properties.
“We are honored that the CPNI group chose Roseboro,” mayor Alice Butler said when the announcement was made for the group to come. “These professionals will be able to put a fresh set of eyes on our town and give us some ideas of how to improve our town and keep moving forward.”
According to Butler, CPNI recruits construction professionals to share their design and construction industry expertise to help rural North Carolina communities. They choose one town each year to visit and make recommendations, and Roseboro is the choice for 2017.
Prior to this week’s presentation, CPNI performed an assessment of the town’s buildings and infrastructure and now plans to present the information and findings during the workshop.
The public is invited to attend this workshop, and according to Butler, no registration is required.
