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!
During the later part of 2015 we began working in the Town Square gardens. Committee members weed, plant seasonal color and perform the general upkeep to keep this jewel of our town as a welcoming center for all that visit the square.
Several members of the committee have specific areas of this garden that they care for: Suzanne Money, Town Square Garden Chair, Joyce Black-Woerz, Anne Dale, Rosemary Dietrick, Jackie Drummond, Libba Fairleigh, Julie King, Jo Langevin, Tracy Munn and Lori Pisani.
