At Buncombe commissioners meeting, a Twitter-fest

Mountain Xpress will be covering the Buncombe County Board of Commissioners’ meeting tonight — pre-meeting starting at 4 p.m. and business meeting at 4:30 p.m. at the County Courthouse — and we’re inviting all you citizen journalists to join us.

Xpress will be Twittering updates from the meeting. If you’re Twittering about the I-26 Connector discussion in Asheville, insert the following code so we can follow the community discussion: #i26connect.

Use this Twitter search to find out what people are saying about the road project.

Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community. Xpress is committed to offering this platform for all voices, but when the tone of the discussion gets nasty or strays off topic, we believe many people choose not to participate. Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service. Thank you for being part of this effort to promote respectful discussion.

  1. Couldn’t twitter it but I did get some citizen photos. Unfortunately I couldn’t stay long, but you could have filled the chamber twice over with activated citizens.

  2. Jeff Fobes

    And just in, via twitter, at 7:02 p.m.:
    Commissioners voted for Alt 3, the Chamber endorsed alternative.
