Have you ever wondered what causes your power to go out or blink? Roanoke Electric Co-op takes pride in being able to keep your lights on. However, we do recognize that sometime outages may occur. The video below gives insight about the most common causes of power outages.
It’s being at the right place at the right time - that’s what RCPP2 is about! The Roanoke-Chowan Partners for Progress 2 (RCPP2) can show you there is unity, creativity, and strength in being a part of this collaborative. RCPP2 is comprised of regional community residents, businesses, nonprofits, educational and faith-based institutions, and local governments.
The Roanoke Center coordinates the partnership with RCPP2. A space has been created where networks are broadened, ideas are fertilized, resources are leveraged, toolkits are expanded, and collaborative teams generate vibrant opportunities for positive community changes.
RCPP2 - Taking a Collaborative Approach Toward Progress
Roanoke-Chowan Partners for Progress 2’s (RCPP2) mission is to coordinate the economic development efforts of nonprofits, local governments and community development within the Roanoke-Chowan and Roanoke Valley regions to stimulate a diversified, vibrant and growing local economy. Stakeholders meet quarterly to share ideas, leverage resources, and discover common ground. Partners’ continuous dialogue prevents entities from replicating work or stepping on each other’s toes.
Below you will find strategic items within the four areas of focus identified by partners in previous sessions.
A signature project being led by the RCPP2 will be engaging the entire region to log their interest in a fiber project that could lead to expanded high-speed internet access for all citizens in Bertie, Gates, Halifax, Hertford, and Northampton counties. For more information on this effort and to show your support, please visit roanoke.crowdfiber.com.
Join the quarterly meetings starting at 10:00 am at Roanoke Electric Cooperative, 518 Hwy 561, Aulander, NC 27805. For additional details contact Reba Green-Holley at RHolley@roanokecenter.org or 252.287.6991.
