THE MAJESTIC MOUNTAINS OF WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA ARE AT RISK
Mountain Voices works to preserve and protect the environment, including the natural beauty, abundant resources, quality of life and cultural heritage of our communities. We achieve our goals by working with local governments, developers, organizations and individuals to encourage responsible and sustainable development that is in the best interest of citizens, visitors, and future generations.
AND ONCE OUR MOUNTAINS ARE GONE ... THEY'RE GONE!
WON'T YOU HELP US STOP THE DESTRUCTION?
¹ Hold local officials accountable by demanding stronger ordinances
to protect our mountains and communities.
¹ Attend City Council and County Commission meetings. Stay informed.
¹ Insist on enforcement of existing regulations - and fines for violators.
¹ Report violations to the appropriate office or agency.
Please contact us if you do not get a satisfactory response.
(See our Toolkit page for information)
¹ Write letters to your City Council or County Commissioners.
Ask them to act in the best interest of the citizens, not the developers!
