The Rutherford County Tourism Development Authority and local leaders have worked for nearly two years to develop a vision for improving quality of life infrastructure to meet the demands of the new economy and our growing tourism industry. The Rutherford Bound Master Plan outlines a bold vision for community revitalization, streetscape investments, and a destination-quality system of greenways, trails, and parks. Rutherford County is a fantastic destination for tourists all year round and with these improvement projects, it will be an even better place to live, work, play and visit.
