Goal: Identify areas of high quality farmland and environmental sensitivity that are worthy of preservation.
Goal Description: The Citizens and Buncombe County Board of Commissioners have prioritized identifying and preserving environmentally sensitive land and farmland within the county. One way to accomplish this is to encourage development on appropriate land outside sensitive areas, or encourage innovative design that conserves sensitive areas within a development. With this in mind, the county will work to increase the percentage of major subdivision and multifamily developments that take advantage of our alternative regulations by 5% by the end of the 2025 fiscal year.
