Press release from Buncombe County:
The Open Space Bond team is currently seeking valuable input from the community to better understand the collective vision for the future of passive recreation lands in Buncombe County. In November 2022, Buncombe County voters approved a general obligation bond to allocate $30 million towards Open Space projects, including greenways, conservation easements, and passive recreation lands.
In an effort to hear what kinds of projects the community would like to see become a reality, the community is invited to attend and engage with the Buncombe County Open Space Bond Team and the Buncombe County Parks and Recreation Department on Thursday, August 10 from 4-7 p.m. at Richmond Hill Park at 300 Richmond Hill Drive in Asheville. This event will take place under the picnic shelter at Richmond Hill Park.
These conversations will help shape the County’s process for evaluating and selecting projects to receive bond funding. To learn more about the Open Space Bond Project, visit the Engage Buncombe portal here.
