What does this mean?
This means the plan that Buncombe County Greenways + Trails Master Plan will be presented to the Board of County Commissioners for their approval. The plan began with a kick off on June 10, 2011 and since then, the BCPGRS staff, the Buncombe County Greenways and Trails Commission and the consultants Kostelec Planning and Equinox Environmental have conducted extensive public meetings to gather opinions and input for the location of the identified greenway corridors.
Buncombe County Greenway and Trails Master Plan is finished and available for final public review online at buncombecounty.org/connect and at all libraries in Buncombe County.
Connect Buncombe is Buncombe County’s public outreach and education campaign that raises awareness of the economic, health, environmental, cultural and safety benefits of greenways. Pollinate Collaborations has been honored to work with many people and businesses to get the word out. Sound Mind Creative did all the design and branding work. And our partner municipalities and communities in Buncombe County, put together all these images telling us why they support greenways!
Here’s just one example of economic development through greenway development. $50,000 to Black Mountain in one weekend!
