The Buncombe County Commission meets this Tuesday, May 2nd, 2023 at 5 pm. You can attend the meeting at 200 College Street, Room 326 in downtown Asheville. You can watch the meeting online via Buncombe County’s Facebook page. The full agenda is here.
There are no new items that we are flagging this week. However, the two items that we flagged last week are still relevant and we encourage you to revisit last week’s report and take the suggested actions. Last week’s flagged items:
We asked what specific strategies the County was employing to encourage Black-owned firms to submit bids for Community Development Block Grant Neighborhood Revitalization contracts;
We also encouraged folks to voice support for the City’s resolution to allocate City-owned property to a Black-led nonprofit. (The resolution passed.)
