Downtown Business Startup Checklist

Downtown Housing Improvement Program

More housing in downtown Morganton is one of the largest and most consistent wishes expressed by citizens, and the City of Morganton is taking a huge step to meet that demand.

After an intensive Masterplan process for the downtown area that involved more than a year’s worth of public input, surveys, and market studies to layout a vision for the future of downtown, the City was not surprised that the Masterplan showed that a large percentage of Baby Boomers and Millennials prefer city-living over a suburban lifestyle.
