Tonight, Asheville City Council will venture away from City Hall and head to Haw Creek Elementary School to hold an East Asheville community meeting.
The hot-button topic of sidewalks is on tonight’s agenda. Two years ago, City Council held a special meeting to address the lack of sidewalks in East Asheville. More than 250 people attended that meeting and about 150 folks had to be turned away when Groce United Methodist Church’s Asbury Hall reached full capacity. This time, Chris Pelly will be on the other side of the table as a councilmember instead of as the president of the Haw Creek Community Association.
An update on the Azalea Flood Control and Road Improvement Project and the Strategic Operating Plan is also on the agenda.
The meeting will allow time for Council to hear input from members of the community. At that time people will be able to voice their concerns and ask questions.
Council will meet at 6:30 p.m. in the theater of Haw Creek Elementary School, located at 21 Trinity Chapel Road. Parking for the meeting can be accessed from Bethesda Road off Old Haw Creek Road, with additional parking available from Trinity Chapel Road.
