Marshville needs forward thinking citizens to GET INVOLVED. Marshville is D E A D ..........and the bypass is not happening anytime soon.

Please citizens, attend your council meetings, voice your opinions, get involved. Only with the involvement of people will action occur.

Please, please, get involved.

Forget about Marshville. It's dead. It's an occupied ghost-town, that's all. Forget about "getting involved". You'll just be outnumbered by ethnic minorities, and only more stagnation ever results from that. You can't have any real prosperity with those people. They don't understand the concept. On the other side of the ledger, look at the whites. Does anything about their appearance give cause to have much hope with most of them either?
I've live here long enough to remember young people in the '90's. Where are the quality ones now? They grew up and left, never to be seen again. Quality people don't generally come to Marshville. They leave.
Want to fix Marshville? A bulldozer would be a good start.

I believe that what Marshville needs is an identity, a reason to know where Marshville is and to come here. Branson, Mo had the same problem until someone thought to make it a country music center noiw everyone knows where it is and why you go there. Something similar could be done here since there are so many artist from the area. We need a "hook".
How bout a Randy Travis Theatre and Detox Clinic? We could get the good ole democrackkks to steal the tax money we need to open it! Then get Randy to donate a few shows a year to draw a crowd.
Put it on Hwy 74 east of town inside Union Co. I guess we could add video gamblin inside too ... heck maybe lobby for a dang casino!

Marshville needs people who want to put down roots here....raise families here. And they won't as long as we are in the news for murders!!!!! We need to put a stop to all of these rental properties. Our population is too transient. It's why our schools don't perform well too.

You just showed your ignorance. Marshville Elementary is one of the highest rated elementary schools in Union County. East Union Middle scores have continued to increase over the past seven consecutive years and Forest Hills rates in the top five high schools in the county. It's called "reading" try it before you spout nonsense about our schools. What Marshville needs is less negativity and less people like you. People who love to hear themselves talk but rarely have anything informational to say.

How many high schools are in Union County now?
Just wondering.

Parkwood, Piedmont, Monroe, Weddington, Forest Hills, Sun Valley & Union Academy. There may be one more but I can't think of the name at the moment. I'm not sure if Porter Ridge is a high school or not.

So, seven (maybe 8) high schools.

Being in the top five may not necessarily be all that great!
If it was first or second they would have said that.
Could it be in the bottom half rather than the top?

I think the answer is a farmers market. Having been to a bunch of smaller, charming towns in NC and SC, the farmer's market scene draws foodies, new restaurant ventures, and brings traffic downtown. Then come the antique shops and bars. Farmer's markets don't just bring people to town, they get them to stay, not to mention the abundance of produce grown in the area. I should have ran for mayor...

Any so-called farmers markets around here are just illegals cluttering up the scenery with third-world eyesore rental property.

Why is there always someone to blame? Lots of complainers with little to do about solving issues. And you will be happy to know at the farmer's markets I have been to, they have been mostly white people. And why does color matter? Whatever the solution, it won't work without a reasonable amount of cooperation from all parties.

Tough guy huh? Keep walking thru there, maybe you'll be the one we read about like the woman who was murdered at College st apartments, or maybe we'll read about you getting robbed,like Joy Helms did, in her own home right on the corner of Ross st, or maybe we'll see where you get busted for robbing someone around there.

Tell that to Joy. She lives on the corner of Ross and College streets and was robbed right in her own home. You can stand in the yard on Ross st and hear gunshots going off, they might not be going off on Ross st, but they're close enough to kill you IF you are on Ross st.
