Goal: Increase the number of miles of municipal and county greenways across Buncombe County that connect to public destinations and activities.
Studies show that greenways increase the resiliency in communities by providing the greatest ROI in several areas including transportation, conservation, recreation, flood control, culture, aesthetics, education, and economic prosperity. Health studies demonstrate that an increase in exercise, including walking alone, may provide longevity in older adults.
