Vision Plan Survey

30 Sep
The City of Asheville has offered to take Neighborhood Vision Plans into account when formulating their next Comprehensive Plan. This past Summer, EWANA hosted 3 input sessions for the neighborhood to gather information on an official Vision Plan for East West Asheville.
After collecting that data, we created a follow-up survey with questions so we can better formulate the East-West Asheville Vision Plan. Please click here to take the Vision Plan Survey.
The Survey will close on Saturday, October 17, 2015.

Survey about the plans to widen I-26/I-240 through Asheville

10 Sep

The Board of the East-West Asheville Neighborhood Association is encouraging you to fill out a survey regarding plans to widen I-26/I-240 through Asheville. We will report our neighborhood results to Land of Sky prior to September 17.

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CN5SP7M

Information:

Plans to widen I-26/I-240 are in the proposed French Broad River Metropolitan Planning Organization’s (Land of Sky) 25-year Regional Transportation Plan. Widening to 6-8 lanes of future I-26 from I-240 to Exit 25 and of I-26 from I-40 to Airport Road (NC 280) have already been funded to occur within the next 5 years. The rest of the widening is recommended in the plan for the 5-20 year period.

The link to the Transportation Plan is: http://www.fbrmpo.org/metropolitan-transportation-plan-mtp/

Additionally, NCDOT could determine to widen Amboy Road, Meadow Road and Swannanoa Road to a 4-lane divided highway, in contradiction to the Wilma Dykeman Riverway Plan, although the MPO Citizens Advisory Committee and Metropolitan Transportation Planning Executive Committee are recommending that the Riverway Plan be followed and these roads be improved for full multi-modal ease and access.

The public comment period for the Transportation Plan is already underway and will end on September 17th. Written comments can be delivered to mpo@landofsky.org and there will be public comment taken at the Goombay Festival at Pack Square (Friday from 5-7 pm and Saturday from 11 am to 3 pm).

Thank you for your participation!

Come to the East West Asheville Summer Picnic!

1 Aug

Please join us for the 3rd annual East West Asheville Summer Picnic hosted by EWANA at Hall Fletcher Park from 4-7 pm on Saturday, August 8th.  Come by to share food and catch up with old friends, meet new people, and find out what’s happening in our fast changing neighborhood. This event is a potluck/covered dish so please bring a dish to share if you can, a chair if you have one, and plates/silverware. Cool playground, sidewalk chalk and kickball for kids so bring them with you!  Bring a neighbor who hasn’t been to an EWANA event yet!  See you there!

(Note: Earlier on this day check out another family fun event at Hall Fletcher that benefits the PTO, http://www.slidethefletch.com.  Make it a day in the neighborhood!)
Hall Fletcher Park is located behind Hall Fletcher Elementary School (60 Ridgelawn Rd.) and is also accessible off of Bradley Street.
(This social event replaces the quarterly business meeting of EWANA for summer – in case of rain the event will be postponed to the following Saturday)
