This is a pivotal moment for the future of Montreat. The Board of Adjustment has scheduled a tentative first hearing on September 23 to consider the permit application for the proposed hotel. We urgently need your support for legal fees and communications expenses so that we can make the strongest case for the Board to deny the permit and stop the hotel.

Donations should be made through our fiscal sponsor, the Preservation Society of Asheville and Buncombe County (PSABC). All donations are fully tax-deductible. The PSABC supports the work of the Montreat Stewards and is graciously charging no fee for this service: 100% of donations go to the work of Montreat Stewards.

Please write a check or make a credit card contribution to PSABC, noting "Montreat Stewards" in the memo or comment line.
