Three Comprehensive Plans are simultaneously taking shape in the Cape Fear region.

The tri-county region, made up of Brunswick, New Hanover, and Pender County, is widely expected to undergo a steep upward trend in population over the next 25 years.  Some estimates put the number at more than a quarter of a million new residents. 

The group’s name is FOCUS.  It may be short and easy-to-remember, but it encompasses a huge mission for the future of the Cape Fear Region.
