Man, remember 2007? What a year, am I right? Flag disputes, Bele Chere, Richmond Hill … anything ring a bell? Well it’s all back for Asheville City Council’s Jan. 8 meeting — the first of 2008 and the first chance to see the new lineup in action.
The agenda looks to be a whale, with discussion on flags in the sign ordinance, a report on changes to Bele Chere, a possible rezoning of 83 acres adjacent to Richmond Hill Park and the incorporation efforts of Leicester.
Throw in an annexation discussion with the town of Woodfin, the shaky future of the Holiday Parade and a healthy handful of public hearings. and you have a meeting with enough portent to shake out those holiday cobwebs that have built since Council last met.
For the complete agenda, go here.
