On Tuesday, September 9, Asheville City Council unanimously voted (7-0) to adopt the proposed Form-based Code for Haywood Road.

WABA is very appreciative of all the community members, businesses, and building owners that participated in the development of this code. It solidifies years of community work on a long-term vision for development along the Haywood Road corridor.

WABA also shares the concerns expressed throughout this process and at Council by members of the community as to the challenges continued development along Haywood Road represents in terms of traffic, pedestrian safety, multi-modal accessibility, parking and the impact this has on our neighborhoods. WABA will continue to work with the City of Asheville and NCDOT to put comprehensive transportation planning in place to address these issues.
