planning and zoning commission
It was a lengthy session for Asheville City Council on Aug. 28, and it's not technically over: Council will reconvene Thursday, Aug. 30, at 4 p.m. to discuss changing the language of the water system referendum. At Tuesday's meeting, Council appointed Joe Minicozzi and Holly Shriner to the powerful Planning and Zoning commission, among many other matters.
One issue looms large on the agenda for tonight's Asheville City Council meeting: new rules that would allow food trucks to operate in downtown. The issue has proven controversial, with some downtown restaurant owners mounting a concerted effort against the new rules. Also: interviewing (and picking) new Planning and Zoning Commission members.
Changes in the city's rules have left the city of Asheville's Planning and Zoning Commission with more power over development than ever before. Because of that, City Council will hold interviews with nine candidates in City Hall on Aug. 23, looking to fill three open seats. Xpress is inviting readers to look at their applications and let us know your top pick.
It's a particularly eclectic meeting tonight for Asheville City Council, with matters including a proclamation recognizing LGBT History Month, an update on the re-opened Hillcrest Bridge, expanding the power of the planning commission, establishing an Affordable Housing Advisory Committee and transferring housing investigations to the NC Human Rights Commission.
