Asheville City Council preview: March 25 meeting

Council’s consent agenda for the March 25 formal session is a heavy hitter, with items that touch on the 10-year plan to end homelessness, flood and storm-water plans and new greenspace in West Asheville.

But once the Council members get through that, the hits will just keep coming, with presentations from hi-tech advocate Wally Bowen on making Asheville a Wi-Fi city and City Attorney Bob Oast on Council’s options for a development moratorium. Swannanoa steps up to the plate as well in a discussion about its drive to incorporate.

For the complete agenda for the Tuesday, March 25, meeting, go here. The meeting starts at 5 p.m. on the second floor of City Hall.

    Do you actually think the housing they are building is affordable? You must not be from here.

  2. Nothing newly built is affordable, everything affordable is used. But if you stop building stuff than not even the used ones will be affordable. The REASON they are not affordable is because the government is not letting them build enough units.

  3. Besides, prices are going down so these units might end up affordable dispite what the builder says. They will eventually become affordable as they deteriorate unless they insist on tearing them down first.

  4. Remember the Windsor was not affordable when it was built. It became affordable as it aged until it was remodeled. But it NEVER would have become affordable if zoners had prevented its construction.
