The City of Hendersonville is continuing conversations with its citizens by hosting a community meeting in the Seventh Avenue area next month.
On May 7, 2019, at 7:00pm, the City will hold a meeting in the Green Meadows community at Union Grove Baptist Church located at 901 Robinson Terrace in Hendersonville. The meeting is specifically geared towards local residents but open to anyone who has an interest in the future of the area.
“These ongoing meetings provide an opportunity for citizens and the City to work together to help the community to thrive,” said Mayor Barbara Volk. “Council members and City staff periodically hear from residents with questions and concerns. Bringing the conversation into people’s backyard is a great way to stay connected and create an open dialogue.”
Seventh Avenue and the surrounding areas are experiencing an upswing in revitalization and economic development. During the meeting, residents will have the opportunity to see renderings of the new police station and ask questions. An overview of planned water and sewer improvements in the Ashe Street neighborhood will also be on the agenda.
Last fall, the city hosted a series of five “Council Conversations” held throughout various areas of Hendersonville. This meeting on May 7 serves as a continuation of conversations started in October that centered around Sullivan Park, creek maintenance and other topics. City staff plan to give an update on the progress of these items and seek additional input from citizens.
Additional Council Conversation meetings will be scheduled across the city during the fall and will be announced later in the year.
