- Courtesy of GAPAVL.org: Our lone item this week is an initiative on this week’s Asheville City Council agenda (Tuesday, August 23rd at 5 pm), an affordable housing proposal that we lifted up last week when it was due for discussion at the Housing and Community Development Committee. All of this project’s units will be offered at 60% of Area Median Income or below, and there is a special provision to offer units to young people who are aging out of foster care. We appreciate the leadership taken by Council Member Antanette Mosley in advancing this proposal, and were glad to see Vice-Mayor Sheneika Smith join her in voting for this initiative to be moved forward. Now, we invite you to join us in urging all of City Council to approve it. To share a message with all City Council members, email AshevilleNCCouncil@ashevillenc.gov.
