Open House Information 

The Town's first open house was a huge success with approximately 150 citizens turning out to provide feedback and gather information on town projects. The materials provided at the Open House are available below for anyone who was unable to attend, or for those who would simply like additional information. 

The Town is working to reschedule a time for officials from the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission and North Carolina Cooperative Extension Office to meet with residents. These are high priority topics and we hope to have a date for this forum soon.

Boxwood Blight found in Biltmore Forest 

Boxwood blight has recently been confirmed in two locations in Biltmore Forest. This is a pathogen that spreads quickly and is exceptionally difficult to contain. Caution MUST be used when dealing with any boxwoods in the landscape.

Cliff Ruth of the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service has prepared the document below that specifically discusses boxwood blight and how it should be handled. The Town urges all residents who have boxwoods on their property to review this document and take heed of the recommended courses of action, particularly as it relates to preventing the spread of the pathogen. Please contact the Buncombe County office of the NC Cooperative Extension office for further information.
