Asheville City Council: Feb. 19 meeting preview

Inking a contract with an outside firm to develop a Downtown Master Plan, a report on regional economic development initiatives, and a Council discussion in preparation for a March 19 public hearing on city annexation, are among the highlights on City Council’s Feb. 19 meeting agenda.

The Council also will discuss traffic management policy, hear a quarterly management report, consider appointments to a slew of city boards and commissions, and take a look at water-line extension incentives for developers to encourage affordable housing and infill development.
