Cleveland, NC – The Town of Cleveland will be hosting a Day of Celebration to provide the community an opportunity to connect in person to the many new and revitalized resources of the Town Today.

Following two years of community input, town officials and community members are taking steps to enhance the town’s infrastructure and build excitement for the future among the community and neighboring communities.

The town, which prides itself in “Home-Town Quality Living,” is taking steps to revitalize and preserve history, stories, charm of the small-town community, yet incorporating community input for enhancing connectivity and creating community resources that unite the past, present and future. Join in the day long celebration, reconnect or make new connections to both community members and resources. 

Come tour newly constructed buildings, including the fire department, Library, Novant and the newly renovated Ice Cream Parlor and General Store.

Mayor Pat Phifer and Town Commissioners will utilize this community event to celebrate an ongoing commitment to unite within the town and our neighboring communities.

“As the West Rowan region encounters unprecedented growth, the Town of Cleveland Board strives to embrace the responsibility of uniting and cooperating with the other  communities, working together to ensure that the quality of life the community has enjoyed is retained,” stated Mayor Pat Phifer. “Working with internal and external connectivity amongst our communities ensures that growth, while inevitable, remains positive for all involved.”

May 22nd is only a peek into the small town’s future as additional community gatherings are scheduled, including a mini-concert series that will follow the 4th Saturday of each month until October 23rd, with the unveiling of the largest barn quilt in the US. 

As Town Officials take on their part to enhance the small-town community, community members are encouraged to share their ideas and time in beautification and revitalization projects. New communication and marketing efforts are currently in the works to enhance communication between officials and community members. Community members can expect these new communication efforts to go into effect in the coming months, including Nextdoor, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and ongoing evolving and enhanced website.
