Neighborhood Plans

Neighborhood Planning and the Comprehensive Plan

There is a growing interest on the part of organized neighborhoods to be involved in creating the future of their neighborhood.  The city is currently in the process of updating the City of Asheville Comprehensive Plan.  Working with a team of consultants, the Planning and Urban Design Department is exploring ways to involve neighborhood residents and other community members in this important process to vision our City’s future.  One avenue neighborhoods can use to have input into this process is by developing and creating a Plan on a Page (see link to document below)  The Plans On A Page listed below have been submitted to the city by organized neighborhoods to share their vision and insights into what the future of our city of neighborhoods can be.  Other opportunities for community input will be posted on the Comprehensive Plan web page.
