Who would you appoint to Planning and Zoning? Take our poll

Changes in the city’s rules have left the city of Asheville’s Planning and Zoning Commission with more power over development than ever before. Because of that, City Council will hold interviews with nine candidates in City Hall on Aug. 23, looking to fill three open seats. Xpress is inviting readers to look at their applications and let us know your top pick.

Our online poll, along with the applications is here.


Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community. Xpress is committed to offering this platform for all voices, but when the tone of the discussion gets nasty or strays off topic, we believe many people choose not to participate. Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service. Thank you for being part of this effort to promote respectful discussion.

    Yoo hoo, your poll’s been hacked. You might consider pulling it.

    So sad that “Communities and residents deciding for themselves what should be built in their neighborhoods” isn’t on the ballot

    I love how the question about growth and development presupposes that we should have both. Ahhhh, I am so overwhelmed with options in our democracy.
