The first of 58 countywide wayfinding signs was unveiled in Concord on November 30, 2017.

The Cabarrus County Convention and Visitors Bureau is the driving force behind the new sign installations, the the project's ultimate goal to increase traveler confidence and connectivity to downtown areas.
“The goal is to improve connectivity while creating a sense of place,” said Donna Carpenter, Cabarrus County Convention & Visitors Bureau President and CEO, in the press release. “With that comes a more dynamic experience and increased visitor spending which translates to tax revenues and greater quality of life for citizens.”
According to Visit North Carolina, domestic visitors to and within Cabarrus County spent $433.03 million in 2016, and Cabarrus County ranks 12th in travel impact among the state’s 100 counties.     
Identified in the CVB’s Destination 2020 Vision Plan, the wayfinding system was a collaborative effort between the CVB, County officials, and a committee composed of representatives from each of the five municipalities. Remaining signs are expected to be installed within the next 30 days.
The Vision Plan was created in 2011 after studying needs within the community. The plan outlines key components for progress as identified by research and is a road map to developing Cabarrus County as a premier travel destination.
