Family-Friendly Affordable Buncombe is a working group advocating for the investment of the coming windfall of property tax revenues from the sale of Mission Health in initiatives that support families as a long-term workforce and economic mobility solution.
Family-Friendly Affordable Buncombe proposes allocating the new property tax revenue to community-wide investments in early childhood education, homes and apartments that are affordable for working families, and better public transit.
