On Wednesday, October 15th, the Town of Boone will publicly kick-off development of the Boone 2030 Land Use Plan, which is also known as the “Smart Growth Plan for the Heart of the High Country.” This planning effort is intended to guide growth and development in Boone’s planning area for the next 20 years. The Town expects citizen participation to be high and invites area businesses and local residents to participate in the process.
North Carolina-based planners and designers with The Lawrence Group, Kubilins Transportation Group, and Rose & Associates Southeast, Inc. have been contracted to lead this planning effort.
This multi-faceted planning event will be kicked off on Wednesday evening at 5:30 at the Broyhill Inn and Conference Center. The event is designed to educate participants on best practices in urban design, transportation, redevelopment, zoning, and preserving community’s character. It will be followed by a hands-on design session where community residents, stakeholders, and Town officials work together to create a vision for Boone.
After Wednesday’s kickoff, there are several meetings scheduled from October 20th until October 24th and a final presentation on October 28th at the Broyhill Inn and Conference Center.
