Neighborhoods are a vital part of every community. Every day people visit Asheville for the views, culture and atmosphere, but they relocate here because of our amazing and unique neighborhoods! The City of Asheville is excited to share a new neighborhood mapping tool. The interactive web map will assist both prospective and current residents with connecting to neighborhoods and foster collaboration between existing neighborhood groups.
As the City has grown over the past several years, more and more neighborhoods have become active, and began organizing to ensure their voices are heard in City Hall. The interactive neighborhood map outlines neighborhood boundaries and allows the user to view the neighborhood’s primary contact. Additionally, the interactive map contains neighborhood information such as website and social media sites.
This tool is a work in progress and the City is looking for citizen assistance to help keep the information up-to-date. Existing groups are encouraged to view their current information on the tool and provide any updates to Interim Neighborhood Services Coordinator, Ashley Traynum-Carson.
The map is limited to neighborhoods who have an active and established neighborhood, homeowner or resident association. Organized neighborhoods that are not reflected on the map can establish a presence by registering their neighborhood association with the City and providing a map of their boundaries.
