Town Council Priorities

Vision Statement: 

Weaverville will maintain its small town and neighborly atmosphere while actively managing the growth that is inevitable near a larger city.  Weaverville will maintain as a distinctive Town with a vital Main Street as its focus.  The town will be attractive to both young and old with a wide range of housing choices at a variety of prices.  Neighborhood and business areas are key building blocks of our community.  We will reserve areas for both types of uses while buffering each from the other.  We seek an attractive town that is well landscaped and accessible to pedestrians.  We will create a favorable atmosphere for the right type of business and industry, those that are clean and provide a good living for our residents.  The services expected from the Town are sidewalks, parks, green spaces, and well run utility and emergency services.  To develop this vision we intend to assertively use zoning, subdivision regulations, extraterritorial planning authority and annexation.
