What makes Pittsboro, NC a Great Place?

Fri, 06/02/2017 - 17:19
New polling questions are now available at www.pittsboroparks.org. The central theme is asking "what we want to be when we grow up" as a community. Many of the questions are open-ended and require a bit more thought than simple multiple choice questions.The polling site shows everyone's responses, so it is hoped that a town-wide conversation will take place.  Enjoy!
