Asheville City Council preview: June 10 meeting

A discussion of the Parkside issue looks to be a big draw for City Council’s Tuesday, June 10, meeting. The scheduled level-three conditional use-permit on the building was removed after developer Stewart Coleman shortened the building by two stories. But after a closed session meeting on June 2, Council plans to visit the issue in the form of a resolution objecting to Buncombe County’s sale of property on City/County Plaza.

Also on the evening’s agenda is a consideration of Railroad Quiet Zones, a possible allocation of Housing Trust Fund money to Mountain Housing Opportunities for a new development, and a public hearing on the 2008-2009 operating budget.

The meeting will begin at 5 p.m. on the second floor of City Hall. For the complete agenda, go here.
