Small Area Plans and Plans on a Page

To complement the comprehensive plan for the city and to focus on specific areas of need, the City and communities have prepared a number of small area or neighborhood plans over the past several years:

Broadway Corridor

Burton Street Neighborhood Plan

Charlotte Street Corridor

Downtown Master Plan

Downtown Master Plan Appendices

East End/Valley Street Vision Plan

Haywood Road Corridor

Shiloh Neighborhood Plan

WestEnd/Clingman Avenue (WECAN)

Wilma Dykeman RiverWay Plan


Neighborhood Plans on a Page

Originally created to inform the development of the Living Asheville Comprehensive Plan, and now used to help guide decision making around development, policies and programs,  all Asheville neighborhoods are encouraged to submit a Plan on a Page.

This tool was designed to help neighborhood groups organize themselves, build community, and develop consensus around neighborhood priorities. Plans on a Page are a bit more than a vision (and admittedly, usually more than a page) but are not as detailed as a small area plan. 

The City of Asheville does not identify neighborhood boundaries, and notes that most neighhborhoods overlap with their adjacent neighborhoods. Regardless, the City registers neighborhoods for the purpose of facilitating communication between all parties involved in the civic sector. We especially want to ensure a productive flow of information and resources between residents, neighborhoods and their city government. You can access an interactive map of registered neighborhoods here.
