Help Weaverville Say No to a Concrete Plant

Please help Weaverville say No to a proposed concrete plant just outside town limits.

For a little background information and residents' objections, check out the latest Mountain X article:
Plans for a concrete plant outside Weaverville have resurfaced. A hearing for a conditional-use permit for the facility is on the agenda for the Buncombe County Board of Adjustment’s March 12 meeting. The announcement has neighbors of the Murphy Hill Road site scrambling once again to oppose the project.
Area residents say the site is woefully inappropriate for a variety of reasons. Neither the two-lane Murphy Hill Road nor the Old Mars Hill Highway intersection can handle the anticipated high rate of truck traffic, they maintain. And the property’s proximity to neighborhoods and schools makes it a poor site for a concrete plant that will have significant environmental impacts.

You can help by:
  1. Attending the public hearing by the Buncombe County Board of Adjustment on Wednesday, March 12 at noon at the County Training Room, 199 College St., Asheville.


  2. Signing the online petition at
