Into the Vault: What’s new in The Xpress Files

This week’s additions to The Xpress Files, our online archive of key government records:

• The U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, which has sparked concerns among some citizens who say it asks too much, while others think it’s a necessary step in the effort to quantify our country.

Meeting notes for North Carolina’s 21st Century Transportation Committee, including Asheville Mayor Terry Bellamy’s recent comments to the committee — of which she is a member — on the city’s most pressing transportation needs.

report by the Pritchard Park Committee, which envisions the downtown-Asheville gathering spot as prime public space for local arts and culture.

• And, in the spirit of spring, the U.S. Forest Service’s Bent Creek trail map.
