In case any of you missed this news coverage of Coggins Farm and it’s development, we felt it beneficial to share. Not only does it capture the beauty of Coggins, but it interviews the developer, David Case, as well as those concerned with the pending development. This coverage was recorded back in February 2014.
In effort to raise and maintain greater community awareness around the conservation efforts for Coggins Farm and the pending development activity on the land, we have created a simple community survey that will take 5 minutes or less to complete.
Your participation in this survey not only gives the CCP a greater understanding of your level of awareness surrounding the project and Coggins land, but it also provides the opportunity to listen to and consider your concerns and/or suggestions before the Coggins Farm conservation proposal is finalized and released to the public.

1) As many of you remember, the Buncombe County Board of Adjustments decided to approve the revised development plans for Coggins Farm last April. A local advocates group that’s in opposition of the development has appealed this decision. This case will now be heard in Superior Court this Tuesday morning (November 4th). We will report on the result as information becomes available. The local news reported on the Board of Adjustment’s decision last spring. That Mountain Xpress news article can be viewed here.
2) The Coggins Conservation Project will be releasing the specifics of our conservation plan for Coggins Farm within the next 2 weeks. In the meantime, please enjoy some new images of the farm taken right before winter hit Asheville early with a blanket of snow!
