Tuesday, October 22, 2013 — Stanly County Commission met for a very short and uneventful meeting at their second Monday night session of the month.

The major topic was the subject of different road alignments that could bypass the communities in western Stanly County.

Dana Stoogenke, director of the Rocky River Rural Planning Organization, said the plans for any changes in the roadways “are still in the beginning stages.”

“We have been meeting for awhile in the focus group about the alignments around the western part of the county and the NCDOT staff wanted me to talk to all the jurisdictions about their preferences,” Strooken said.

She explained there was no official action sought from the commission because there was no final plan to put before them.
