Ask The General Assembly To Support WNC Rivers in the Budget

Ask The General Assembly To Support WNC Rivers in the Budget

Over the past few months, MountainTrue has been working with lawmakers to support a number of conservation projects that could end up being adopted in the next state budget. These projects will help clean up hazardous spills like the one that happened last year on the Watauga River, fund expanded water quality monitoring and improved river access for anglers, boaters and swimmers. Contact your legislators to urge them to support clean water for WNC and ensure that they make it into the final budget.

Call on Asheville City Council to Fund Transit Route Improvements for Historically Disenfranchised Communities!

Call on Asheville City Council to Fund Transit Route Improvements for Historically Disenfranchised Communities!

Asheville city staff recently announced their recommendations for what City Council should fund in the upcoming city budget. While the Asheville Regional Transit Coalition is excited that they’re recommending more frequent and extensive service throughout the city – bundled together as the “green” and “purple” route improvements – they have not recommended funding for a bundle of “yellow” route improvements that would serve the historically disenfranchised communities of Bartlett Arms, Livingston and South French Broad. Take action here to call on City Council to fund the yellow route improvements in this year’s budget!
