It takes a whole lot of planning and resources to make a neighborhood safer, greener, and more resilient. In Asheville, North Carolina, a riverside neighborhood has benefitted from city officials' efforts to expand greenways and bike paths, ease traffic, and restore native vegetation along the French Broad River. The planning and positive effects as this work progressed are clearly visible in Compare Mode. With Lens Parcel Owner Alerts, it's also easy to keep track of when a property changes hands so you can be sure you have up-to-date information to facilitate strong relationships with landowners and neighbors.
