Siler City, NC - Siler City’s North Carolina Small Town Economic Prosperity (NC STEP) Leadership Team launched this month. The website, developed by the NC STEP Marketing Committee, is a community resource for current and future residents and anyone interested in learning about the small town that anchors western Chatham County.

The website, as an online gateway to Siler City, provides a convenient way to get information about many aspects of the town and surrounding community, providing direct links to retail, events, arts, and more.

“We included a variety of community resources from physicians, dentists, wellness providers to restaurants, retailers, schools, arts, murals, parks and trails,” said Diana Hales, chair of the NC STEP Marketing Committee. The ExploreSilerCity website promotes community diversity and the delightfully unexpected charms of this town. The team is also working to add content featuring Siler City businesses.

“The NC STEP Leadership Team identified the need to showcase Siler City’s resources that make this a well-rounded community for residents, an attractive retirement destination, and a great place for business,” said Hales. “That’s what we’re trying to accomplish with this website.”

The website is also a vehicle for other NC STEP projects. The NC STEP Arts Committee, chaired by NC Arts Incubator Director Ann Bass, is developing a locally-made products guide to be housed on the website. The guide will exhibit myriad products crafted in the Siler City area.

Siler City has been a NC STEP town since August 2010. The program, created by the North Carolina Center for Rural Development, empowers citizens to create and participate in small town revitalization projects they define and develop.
