As part of an overall campus strategic planning process, Assembly Public Works has compiled strategic plans regarding the future of the Assembly. These plans differ in their intent and purpose.
The Municipal Study explores our options for municipal status. This plan is not a financial comparison or to make any specific recommendations. The study lays out the process, advantages and disadvantages to the most feasible options for the future of the Lake Junaluska Assembly; incorporation, merging our water and sewer systems, annexation with Waynesville, or staying as we are.
