Buncombe and WNC Success - Focus on Older Adults

What does success look like in WNC?

How does the older Asheville / Buncombe / Western North Carolina resident fit in the vision?

What are the steps we should be taking to ensure we are meeting community goals?

Here are some focus ideas:

  • Environmental stewardship: High-quality air, water, farmland, and renewable energy for future generations
  • Educated and capable community: A community where all people thrive and demonstrate resilience throughout their lives
  • Vibrant economy: A robust and sustainable regional economy that builds on our homegrown talent and provides economic mobility for resident
  • Resident well-being: Our residents are safe, healthy and engaged in their community

In order to accomplish these goals we will have to build the foundation and the EWI team is here to help work towards:

Best-in-class performance to support the strategic focus areas through information technology, facilities, risk management, evaluation, and administration

The funding, talent, and partnerships that enable high-quality delivery of services.
