a strategic plan to move our County forward
Buncombe 2025 is a strategic plan that will guide County operations and set a course of action for moving forward and drive future policy and budget decisions.
The plan development began in July 2019 with a series of workshops with Commissioners facilitated by consultant Rebecca Ryan with guidance from UNC School of Government. Focus areas were defined by the Commissioners’ priorities and input from employees and the public was considered.
Moving forward, a tentative goal has been set to adopt the plan in early 2020 with it taking effect in July.
Notice: Please keep in mind that this page and plan are works in progress. Buncombe County encourages all interested parties to please check back frequently for updates.
