Press release from City of Asheville: 

The next formal meeting of the Asheville City Council will be held at 5 p.m. Sept. 24 in the U.S. Cellular Center Banquet Hall, 87 Haywood St. Free parking will be provided at the Civic Center Parking Garage for those who wish to attend, from 4:30 p.m. until the meeting is over.

Because of high interest in some agenda items, Council decided to move this meeting to accommodate a larger than usual number of attendees. Items on the agenda will include:
