 Preserve Crab Creek


Crab Creek neighbors and friends recently convinced a county board to stop a developer from building a giant storage facility in the heart of our community.  It was a unanimous decision.  In achieving this victory, we learned that rural communities throughout the county are all vulnerable to development that threatens their beauty, tranquility, ecology, and cultural heritage.  Now we're: 

  • Working with county officials to keep rural areas rural, countywide.  If rural areas aren't better protected, we'll all need to keep fighting inappropriate development.   Learn more

  • ​Responding to an appeal of the county's decision by the storage-facility developer.  Unfortunately, Crab Creek rural character is still hanging by a thread.  Learn more.

  • Continuing to build community around a shared love of Western North Carolina's natural resources and rural heritage.  Ask for updates (below), join our Facebook group, and please consider making a generous donation.
