Healthy Communities

MountainTrue supports economic vitality and growth in Western North Carolina without compromising our mountain habitat.

Growth brings economic vitality to Western North Carolina, and MountainTrue members and volunteers work to ensure that development does not come at the expense to our environment and quality of life. We partner with communities throughout Western North Carolina to support smart planning, sensible land use and multi­-modal transportation initiatives.
