The Neighborhood Advisory Committee (NAC) and the Coalition of Asheville Neighborhoods (CAN) are co-sponsoring a Neighborhood Plan Workshop from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Nov. 7 in Ferguson Auditorium at Asheville-Buncombe Community Technical College.
The purpose of the workshop is to:
• Help neighborhoods better understand the City’s long-term planning process and how neighborhoods can participate in an upcoming Comprehensive Plan update.
• Give neighborhoods who are interested in creating plans a practical overview of the ways they can accomplish that goal by hearing from their peers who have completed a planning process for their neighborhood.
The City’s 2024 plan is online for people who to review the current Comprehensive Plan.
The purpose of the Comprehensive Plan is described below:
“The Asheville City Development Plan 2025 proposes a land use pattern, transportation network and system of City services and infrastructure that reflects the above community desires and wishes concerning the future growth of the City. The plan includes goals and strategies that will guide the City of Asheville in meeting those desires. These goals and strategies typically requires separate actions on the part of City Council, City staff, or other boards and agencies; consequently, periodic adjustments to the plan will be necessary to reflect the actual actions that are taken as the goals and strategies are considered, modified, and/or implemented and as circumstances change. To this end, the Asheville City Development Plan 2025 must be considered as a guide for decision-making, rather than the final decision on any particular issue.”
Here’s a link to the Shiloh Community Plan 2015, which was adopted by Asheville City Council in 2010.
