Aug. 5, 2021: Asheville City Council meetings, city-managed advisory boards, and City Council committee meetings will be held virtually until further notice. This will include the Tuesday, Aug. 24 Asheville City Council meeting and American Rescue Plan Act work session.
This decision is based on an extension of an order issued by Governor Cooper allowing cities to to legally hold virtual meetings. This measure is meant to protect the health and safety of our community while there is an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases locally and with substantial transmission in Buncombe County.
PLEASE NOTE EXCEPTION: The August meeting for Historic Resources Commission (Wednesday, Aug. 11) has been legally published as an in-person meeting in the newspaper, so it will remain in person for this meeting.
Virtual meetings will continue to be streamed live to the city of Asheville virtual engagement hub and the city YouTube channel. Instructions on how the public can participate via virtual public comment will be posted on the city of Asheville website, each City Council meeting agenda and the virtual engagement hub as well.
