While Ashevilleans are (hopefully) streaming to the polls on Nov. 3, the Buncombe County Board of Commissioners plan to hold its regular meeting. It’s a relatively brief agenda, but changes to the flood ordinances and a sustainability plan for the county are both on the table.
The commissioners will vote on a series of changes to the county’s flood ordinances as well as a sustainability plan that advises the county to strive for LEED-certified energy efficient buildings and building up a vehicle fleet with lower emissions, among other initiatives.
The county will also consider a $21 million financing partnership with the Health Adventure, which is building a new Health and Science learning center on Broadway Street.
A closed session to address an unspecified legal matter.
The meeting begins at 4:30 p.m. in the commissioners’ chambers at 31 Valley St. A short pre-meeting will start at 4:15 p.m.
