Hot Springs, North Carolina:
An A.T. Community’s Progression from 2006 to 2019
Hot Springs is not only a recognized A.T. Community in North Carolina, but the town has been actively involved with the ATC in promoting, protecting, and preserving the A.T. This small and tight-knit community widely values the A.T. and considers the Trail a pivotal asset to the town. As a result, the ATC partnered with the town in 2006 to revitalize the ATC’s presence within the town and spur community action and participation. Deep outreach and investment in relationship building between community leaders and stakeholders was done to initiate revitalization efforts.
In 2019, revisiting public perceptions and suggestions over a decade after the original revitalization project, the ATC aims to gain an understanding of the community’s progression since becoming an A.T. Community according to their original vision.
