Dillsboro's Land Use Plan

Dillsboro’s Land Use Plan – named “Destination Dillsboro: the 2042 Comprehensive Plan” – was developed by JMTE’s project team, which included Mosaic Civic Studio, over a yearlong process of stakeholder interviews, survey deployment, and analysis of existing conditions and future scenarios. With support from Mosaic, JMTE worked with the Town to develop recommendations for the Dillsboro’s future success. Focus areas included outdoor recreation and tourism, maintaining a small-town aesthetic, supporting the local craft community, improving housing variety of all types, and ensuring safe pedestrian infrastructure between downtown and all community parks. Destination Dillsboro is the Town’s very first comprehensive land use plan and JMTE is proud to have helped the community find strategies to “craft” its future.
