Working Group

Quickly mobilizing to respond to broad-based community concerns, the Haw Creek Community Association created a Working Group to respond to the proposed 95-unit "Meadows at Haw Creek" subdivision for 767 New Haw Creek Road. This action followed a Nov. 28th public meeting, at which over 200 residents expressed overwhelming opposition to the developer's plan.

Although there is broad-based resistance to the project as proposed, points of opposition will be fact-based and built around evidence supporting our concerns.

The 767 Working Group comprises community leaders with relevant professional and personal experience who will serve on the following committees:

    • Architectural design ~ evaluate and critique the proposed design and assess its alignment with Asheville's Comprehensive Plan; propose alternative designs including elements sought by the greater Haw Creek community
    • Communications ~ manage messaging and updates to the Haw Creek community to maximize public engagement
    • Community outreach ~ mobilize the community via petitions, yard signs, letter writing campaigns, and other ways to facilitate public action
    • Engineering ~ evaluate the proposed subdivision for compliance with development standards and for opportunities to improve the design and lessen the environmental impact
    • Legal process ~ evaluate the development review process and provide key dates/information to help boost public participation

We are conducting a comprehensive review of the project proposal as submitted to the City. We are also undertaking an independent traffic study to determine the operational and safety impacts of the development project.

We expect to recommend any future development on this property be on a scale significantly less extensive than currently proposed. Although we cannot guarantee success, HCCA and the 767 Working Group will strive for an outcome that balances private property rights with the interests of the surrounding community. 

If you would like to become actively involved with the 767 Working Group, please email with your contact information and areas of expertise and skills that would be valuable to this effort.
