In 2019, the Holly Springs Town Council adopted a Strategic Plan that each department looks to, to define their yearly goals and focus areas. Two of the five Strategic Priority Areas in place are Economic Prosperity and Diversity and Responsible & Balanced Growth, which both support what we do in Economic Development.
