Robeson County Boardof Commissioners

The Commissioners of Robeson County have consistently and aggressively supported every opportunity to expand economic growth in the county and the region. This commitment is reflected not only in the incentive programs adopted and funded by the commissioners, but also in their willingness to support growth initiatives with an attitude that says…”we will always act to encourage and assist every legitimate business initiative in the county that creates jobs and a better standard of living for our people.” Any new or expanding business or industry will find this level of political support extraordinary, and a welcome incentive in and of itself. The commissioners take economic growth seriously and see it as an integral aspect of their service to the people of this county and the region. Whenever there are relocation or expansion considerations to evaluate, the commissioners pro-growth actions and attitudes are simply unmatched.
