    Kudos to the Buncombe County Commissioners for
    approving 7-0 new zoning for Asheville’s ETJ’s as
    proposed by County Planning and Development.
    State law SL2013-30 mandates that as of August 17th, all of the city’s ETJ’s be eliminated
    and rezoned by the Buncombe County. This has
    been a long time in coming – since 1977, the
    city claimed zoning jurisdiction over areas
    within 1 mile of the city. Democracy has
    returned! What right does a city have to zone and issue permits on land owned by non-city residents if they aren’t allowed to vote for council members?
