In 2016, the Carter County Commission voted to fund the pursuit of the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Tourism Enhancement Grant. Designsensory was selected as the firm to complete grant requirements, one of which was the Asset Action Plan showcased here. These are living documents that will be updated as recommendations are addressed. Other plans from organizations like the Carter County Parks and Recreation as well as the City of Elizabethton Planning Department are also included here to show cohesion among all initiatives.
