Smart Growth: Looking to the Past to Plan for Our Future Webinar

February 10 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

On Thursday, February 10th, join Hendersonville Green Drinks guest Chris Joyell, MountainTrue’s Healthy Communities Director, to discuss the concept of “smart growth,” looking at ways we can make our cities and towns more liveable. The state projects that in the next 25 years, over 39,000 people will move to Henderson County. To put that in perspective, that’s more than the current populations of Hendersonville, Flat Rock, Fletcher, Laurel Park, and Mills River combined. Housing experts estimate that these newcomers will require 17,000 new homes. Where will these homes be built? Can our roads absorb this influx of new residents? How can we preserve our rural heritage while building town centers that people love?

Chris will explore these questions against the backdrop of Henderson County’s ongoing Comprehensive Planning effort. Using Smart Growth Principles as a guide, Chris will discuss how we can realize a vision for growth in Henderson County that encourages economic development, respects our natural resources and agricultural heritage and enhances our quality of life for generations to come.
