New Moore Alive Website Promotes Moore County, NC as a Place to be "Alive"
Moore Alive promotes Moore County, NC as an exceptional place to live, work, and play. The Moore Alive website address is www.moorealive.com.
"It's a place where you can really be alive", said Pat Corso, PIP Executive Director.
The foundation of the Moore Alive initiative is the www.moorealive.com website that targets and encourages individuals and families within a variety of demographic profiles, including young professionals, families, active and retired/separated military personnel, and retirees, to relocate to Moore County to live, work and play. The goal is to ensure that Moore County stays populated with talented and innovative people who will start businesses, enhance our workforce, and have a desire to see our communities grow and prosper.
Moore Alive is a clearinghouse of information about the County, including employment opportunities, local businesses and industries, villages and towns, recreational and cultural activities, professional networking, and even its climate. Its focus on resident profiles allows people to see how they themselves might fall in love with living in Moore County.
"Moore County is an interesting place that has much to offer a wide range of people. We want people to emotionally connect with the idea of moving to and living in Moore County," said Caleb Miles, President of the Pinehurst - Southern Pines - Aberdeen Area Convention & Visitors Bureau.
Studies indicate that the #1 site location concern of new and expanding businesses is workforce, both in terms of quality and availability. From an economic development perspective, Moore Alive will encourage a steady influx of highly skilled workers. This, in turn, makes Moore County more attractive and competitive as a suitable location for new and existing industrial and professional employers, especially those with specialized workforce needs. Moore Alive will also help us pursue targeted industry sectors as part of our economic development strategy.
Moore County’s central location in North Carolina is halfway between the mountains and the coast, and is just a one-hour’s drive from metropolitan areas. Resources and amenities in the Research Triangle Park, Raleigh-Durham area, the Piedmont-Triad region, and Fayetteville are easily accessible, but in Moore County, people can still enjoy a more rural and less hectic way of life. Residents appreciate Moore County’s mix of small town living and big city amenities — the best of both worlds.
It is also an excellent location for relocating military families who need or want to be near Fort Bragg (but don’t want to live in a military community!). Adjacent to the base’s western boundary, the Town of Southern Pines is just 35 minutes from the main post area. Families looking for a safe, family-friendly environment to call home can look to Moore County for a variety of living options, a wealth of family-oriented amenities, an excellent public school system, and exceptional healthcare services.
In June 2014, Moore County was in the international spotlight as the Pinehurst No. 2 golf course hosted both the U.S. Men's and U.S. Women's Open Championships, which marked the first time in history that both tournaments were played in the same year, on the same course. People from around the world were able to see that Moore County is a top destination for creative and talented people to live, work, and play.
Moore Alive’s tag line “Stress Less, Live Moore” says it all. Moore County offers a rural, low-key lifestyle with a level of sophistication virtually unavailable anywhere else.
