Make Weaverville Accessible for All

TAKE PART IN THE ADA TRANSITION PLAN PROCESS

In an effort to make the Town of Weaverville facilities and programs accessible to all, the Town has embarked on a comprehensive evaluation and Transition Plan process. The Plan seeks to identify barriers which impede access to Town facilities that are open to the public and to ensure compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Title II requirements.

A key element of this project is to engage the public and gather public comment on accessibility issues within our community.

Small Town Strong

Weaverville. SMALL-TOWN-STRONG Initiative Launched

WEAVERVILLE. SMALL-TOWN-STRONG INTIATIVE

Weaverville, North Carolina, April 17, 2020 – The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted everyone’s daily lives. From dining out to enjoying the beautiful work of our Town’s artists, many of the activities that we are accustomed to, have been placed on pause. This drastic change from life as we’ve known it has impacted small businesses throughout the country. With local small businesses being forced to cease operations, many have had to close their doors and furlough their employees. Some businesses across the country have closed their businesses permanently due to the financial strain that the pandemic has placed on them.

Town government sees the devastation this pandemic has caused our local, small businesses. The Town wants to help. In an effort to advocate for Weaverville’s small businesses, the Town of Weaverville is launching the Weaverville. Small-Town-Strong initiative. This project will initially take the form of a survey for local, small business owners to complete and provide information about their business needs during these difficult times. Once business owners have provided this information, the Town will develop a central webpage off the Town’s website whereby business’ long-term customers and potential customers will find ways to support the businesses, whether by ordering their merchandise online, purchasing gift certificates for later use, ordering take-out, or simply bringing attention their way.

The survey, which can be found here:  http://survey.constantcontact.com/survey/a07eh11thatk8vtab8a/start . The Town encourages our local small business owners to join this initiative by completing the survey by Friday, April 24, 2020.
