Gaston County Redevelopment

For as long as most people can remember, Gaston County has been the brunt of Charlotte’s jokes. And, quite frankly, Gastonians aren’t laughing. They’ll admit, they’ve had their challenges but they’ve also been working hard to remake themselves, bring in more businesses, create more jobs, get more people to put down roots, to rebrand themselves, and get folks here to see them in a new light. They make their case with us.
