Xpress Development Guide survey
As Mountain Xpress plans its guide to local government decision-making for land development in Asheville and Buncombe County, we want to hear from you. Your input will help us shape the content and design of the guide, which will be published in January.

This short questionnaire asks about your current knowledge of the development process, past experience with local development projects and thoughts about tools that would help your future involvement. The survey should take no more than 5 minutes to complete.

If you have other comments or input about the guide, please email Assistant Editor Daniel Walton at DWalton@mountainx.com or call 828-251-1333 ext. 138.
