A Living Map Of Western North Carolina

Living Maps: Livable Communities from Worldviews Network on Vimeo.

Worldviews Network released this video a few days ago. It examines the development pressures on western North Carolina within the five county region centered around Asheville.

The brief video does an excellent job summarizing the demands and constraints on the region (e.g., main transportation corridors, natural topography) and the need to balance the remaining natural environment (including agricultural land) with continued growth (i.e., housing, employment centers) in each community/city and in the region as a whole.
