Water request opens door to needed code revision

by Heather Berry

Weaverville – An application request for Weaverville water for a proposed Reems Creek Road multi-family housing development, just outside the town limits, set in motion a lengthy discussion about the need to revise certain town zoning codes at the Jan. 25 Weaverville Town Council meeting. Initially, the application was set for rejection as advised by Public Works Director Tony Laughter but, after the discussion, council approved the request conditionally. Laughter wasn’t present at the meeting due to illness, but offered his thoughts on the project via speakerphone.
Chris Day, representing Asheville’s civil design engineering firm Civil Design Concepts, requested that council approve the extension of the Weaverville water line to the proposed development with 532 units at 212,800 gallons of water per day. Councilman Doug Dearth asked for clarification regarding the rejection of the application. Town Manager Selena Coffey, reading from Laughter’s recommendations answered, “The water is available along Reems Creek Road; there is an 8-inch main that runs along the road. A water line extension would be required for this project.” Coffey further explained Weaverville did have the capacity for the extension; however, the development’s location outside of town limits was, according to Coffey, Laughter’s reasoning behind his recommended rejection.

by Heather Berry

Winter storm grinds county to a halt

by James Matthews

Buncombe County - A massive winter storm passed through the area, causing chaos throughout the county.
Aside from closing down the schools, Buncombe County Government also closed at 10 a.m., as heavy snow began to fall throughout the region.
According to the Weaverville Police Department’s Administrative Assistant Kim Buckner, “Believe it or not, we only had two accidents. One was on US-25 and one had to be transported to the hospital. The other accident involved four vehicles on Hamburg Mountain Road. That was the only thing we had. One with two cars and the other with four cars.”
Weaverville Police also took it a step further by preemptively ensuring that people would be safe during the storm. Via their “NEXTDOOR” social media page, which the police department uses to keep town residents updated with police activities, the department made a post about helping disabled and elderly neighbors with shoveling snow. In addition, Weaverville Police Chief Greg Stephens stated that “Kim Buckner, [Weaverville Police] Administrative Assistant, made several calls to some of our senior citizens well in advance of the storm to make sure everyone had food, heat and shelter.
