In 2010, the Black Mountain Board of Aldermen purchased 1.2 acres of land in the center of town. The Board then convened a Town Square Steering Committee who worked over the next 4 years to discover how the space should be used, what it should look like and how it would be paid for. Voters revealed a preference to use this land for open space, parking and lastly commercial development. A conceptual drawing of those elements was developed and the final result is what you see now!
Legacy bricks continue be sold through the Black Mountain Parks and Greenways, Inc. foundation, which also handles all the funds for the following listed organizations:
- Beautification Committee
- Playground Committee
- Greenways Commission
- Lake Tomahawk Committee
- Town Square Committee
- Health Initiative
- Community Garden
- School Garden
- Tennis Assoc.
The Foundation board consists of representatives from each group or a combination of groups. We maintain our own PO Box ( Box 253, Black Mountain, NC, 28711) and Town staff are consultants to the board, but not members of the board.
If you are interested in purchasing a brick to be placed in Town Square please download the brochure for instructions. If you prefer, you may come to Town Hall and complete the order form (available in the entryway) and turn it in to the Town Clerk along with your payment.
Photos of the project are available for viewing in the photo album below. Or visit our Facebook page. Enjoy!
