Friends of Town Mountain (FoTM) is an organization of full and part-time residents in the Town Mountain area who actively promote the interests of the Town Mountain community. Chartered in 2006, our mission is to bring awareness to and advocate for quality of life issues, including the support of environmentally responsible development on our mountain and across Western North Carolina.

Our efforts range from organizing neighborhood litter sweeps to strategic outreach to residents, technical experts, media, law enforcement, county commissioners, planning board members, and county staff on issues of wide interest. Working with others, FoTM has helped to bring about:

  • a stronger sense of community in the Town Mountain Road area
  • reduced motorcycle racing on Town Mountain Road
  • a litter free Town Mountain community
  • improved communication among neighborhoods in the Town Mountain area
  • this FoTM website with information on issues and events
  • FoTM Facebook and Nextdoor pages
  • Annual summer membership meeting and social
  • vastly improved steep slope subdivision ordinances in Buncombe County
  • open county planning board meetings that allow public participation
  • storm water and erosion control rules that help prevent runoff to neighboring properties
  • sensible zoning that protects our view sheds and property values
  • letters and editorials to local newspapers in support of our interests
