Housing is the main agenda item at the April 28 Asheville City Council meeting.
Council members will hear and vote on approval of the 2015-2019 consolidated action plan for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnership Act funds. The action plan lays out proposed usage of the funds for the next fiscal year, and seeks to authorize a submission to the U. S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development.
A proposed apartment complex on 128 Florence Street will also be the subject of a hearing regarding a site review and conditional use permit allowing a 97-unit building on the currently vacant site.
Under the consent agenda, there is a resolution to rescind the elimination of the Downtown Fare Free Zone and refer the action to the Multimodal Transportation Commission for further discussion.
