The City of Asheville is working on a long–term vision for the city-owned property located at the intersection of Haywood Street and Page Avenue in downtown Asheville just across and south of the St. Lawrence Basilica.
In March 2016, Asheville City Council approved a public visioning process for the space. The process is being facilitated by Asheville Design Center in collaboration with the City Council-appointed Haywood Street Advisory Team.
In June, open houses were held to help shape the long-term vision, while also identifying short-term activities to enliven the space. Now the team is asking for additional input through an online survey focusing on what people would like to DO in this space, rather than what they would like to SEE. This is your chance to let your vision be known.
Please take a few minutes to complete the online survey and share your vision. It will probably take less than 15 minutes to complete. Please remember we are not creating a design at this time. We are just collecting your ideas. The deadline to complete the survey is October 31. The information gathered from the survey and the past open houses will be used by the team to make a recommendation to Asheville City Council.
