Lauren Bradley, Finance & Management Services director for the city of Asheville, informed us today that the city/county evaluation panel has discussed and scored the finalists’ presentations for the Community Media Development Initiatives grant. Ponderwell’s proposal received the highest overall score and will be receiving the panel’s recommendation, which goes to Asheville City Council. Council is expected to vote on funding the initiative Oct. 11.
As we reported last week, Mountain Xpress and Ponderwell presented their proposals to an evaluation panel for the Community Media Development Initiatives grant.
