MountainTrue to host meeting on 2045 comp plan on Jan. 30

MountainTrue is hosting a community meeting from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 30, at the Edneyville Community Center, 15 Ida Rogers Drive, to inform the public about the 2045 Henderson County Comprehensive Plan.

Henderson County is drafting its new Comprehensive Plan — the blueprint that will guide growth and development for the next 20 years. This is a critical opportunity to have a voice in how Henderson County grows and develops to meet the challenges of climate change, a growing population, and increased pressures on our built and natural environment. County commissioners hope to adopt the comp plan by May and are scheduled to address Goal 1, “Coordinate development near existing community anchors,” and Goal 2, “Protect and conserve rural character and agriculture,” at their regularly scheduled mid-February meeting.

MountainTrue staff and volunteers will review the 2045 Henderson County Comprehensive Plan, its goals, and how it can be improved to better address the priorities of county residents. There will be opportunities to ask questions and sign up to advocate for a better Comprehensive Plan.
