GroWNC Consortium

GroWNC will be guided by a Consortium representing residents and organizations in Buncombe, Haywood, Henderson, Transylvania, and Madison Counties. The Consortium will include members from public and private housing, planning, transportation, economic development, research, educational and philanthropic organizations, and others. The purpose of the Consortium will be to oversee the development of a regional plan that weaves together existing plans and strategies throughout the region to foster economic prosperity through a regional vision that identifies implementable projects and actions. The Initiative will include significant public outreach and involvement throughout.

The Consortium will be led by a 13-member Steering Committee, which will be responsible for prioritizing work activities, participating in the selection of consultants, approving public involvement approaches, and making critical recommendations to guide the project and staff.
