Haywood you have a lookee here?

The Haywood Road Corridor Committee will host an open house at the West Asheville Library on Monday, June 25, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The topic of the Q&A session is proposed rezoning. This is a final chance to help fashion the proposal that will be presented to City Council (though there will be a public hearing when Council actually considers the plan.)

Based on input from residents and business owners through a community-wide survey and monthly meetings, the committee has drafted a proposal to rezone the Haywood Road Corridor. Members of the committee and city planning staff will be present to answer questions about the proposal and receive input on the final draft.

The draft document can be viewed here.
