Community Safety Resources In Haw Creek

The Asheville Police Department’s website is a great resource for safety information in our community. You can use the user-friendly and interactive Community Crime Map to see criminal events in our local area. The APD’s website includes many crime prevention tips, including the importance of locking the doors of your car and home.

If you have an incident to report, the Asheville Police Department’s non-emergency number is 828-252-1110 or you can contact East Asheville Community Resource Officer Joshua Veridal at 828-782-0170 or jveridal@ashevillenc.gov.

Haw Creek Community Kids

We still have a few spots available to be a part of Haw Creek Community Kids at Bethesda UMC! We will be offering a time for our children to come together and serve their community. Each week we will gather to take part in a different local community service project such as:

  • “Thank yous” for our Fire Fighters
  • Animal Treats/Toys for our Animal Shelters
  • Blessing Bags for VA residents
  • Mats for our Homeless Community
  • “Get Well” items for children with extended stay in the hospital

If you would like to be a part of the little ways our kids can make a big difference, please contact Maria Askea, maskea@wnccumc.net

 

City of Asheville Comprehensive Plan Presentation

The Haw Creek Community Association (HCCA) invites you to a meeting on Thursday, June 28 at 7:00 p.m. at St. John’s Episcopal Church Parrish Hall (290 Old Haw Creek Rd.) to learn what the city is thinking regarding development in neighborhoods. Todd Okolichany, planning director for the City of Asheville, will be presenting information from the city’s new comprehensive plan, Living Asheville: A Comprehensive Plan for our Future. Based on goals set by the community, the plan addresses Asheville’s future by focusing on livable built environment, resilient economy, responsible regionalism, healthy community, interwoven equality, and harmony with natural environment. Following the presentation, you will have an opportunity to ask questions related to the plan and how it affects Haw Creek.

Many people in Haw Creek have divergent opinions as to what we want in our neighborhood. We are a large neighborhood with people who have lived here for a long time and others who have moved in more recently. It is diverse neighborhood with newer homes, older homes, and rental apartments. The needs of different people must be taken into consideration in deciding what we want for the future of our neighborhood. The HCCA is seeking input from those who live in this valley.

In consideration of this, the HCCA Board of Directors is moving forward to better understand what is important to residents. In addition to this meeting, we will be holding a follow-up meeting later this summer where there will be opportunities for everyone’s voice to be heard. We are also asking neighbors to fill out a brief online survey on what is important to you and how you envision our neighborhood’s future.  This survey is available and accepting your input currently.

We urge you to take the time to participate in our conversation in person and online. If you have any questions, please contact us at info@ilovehawcreek.com.
