Buncombe commissioners to hold series of community meetings

Buncombe County commissioners will hold community meetings over the next couple of weeks in each district, seeking feedback and ideas from constituents.

Attendees are encouraged to express concerns, ask questions, and bring up topics for discussion, according to the Buncombe County website. However, commissioners do not plan to vote or take any other formal actions at the meetings.

Here are more details:

• July 9, District 3: Commissioners David King and Joe Belcher will lead a community meeting at the Enka Branch Library from 6 to 7 p.m. District 3 encompasses western Buncombe County, including Leicester, Enka, and Biltmore Forest.

• July 15, District 1: Vice Chair Holly Jones and Commissioner Brownie Newman will lead a community meeting at Pack Library in Lord Auditorium from 6 to 7 p.m. The borders of District 1 roughly align with those of the city of Asheville.

• July 16, District 2: Commissioners Mike Fryar and Ellen Frost will lead a community meeting at Bee Tree Community Center from 6 to 7 p.m. District 2 encompasses much of eastern Buncombe County, including Fairview, Black Mountain and Weaverville.
