Council Comp-versations

We are having conversations across Hendersonville about the Gen H - Hendersonville's Comprehensive Plan and planning for the next 20 years & beyond! 
Hendersonville’s popular Council Conversation series is joining forces with the Community Development Department to bring Gen H Council ‘Comp-versations’ to five locations across the City. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with their City Council members and take part in the development of the 2045 Gen H Comprehensive Plan. Join us at any or all of the meetings to discuss a variety of topics related to growth, community character, and sustainability.
