​DARN (Downtown Asheville Residential Neighbors) was formed in 2005 to bring downtown residents together as neighbors, and to give them a voice in community issues. DARN sponsors neighborhood social functions, communicates with City officials on topics of concern to its members, and works with other organizations to make living downtown a positive experience.
