Friday Open Thread: Retreat!By
Your Asheville City Council will convene at 11am in the Canon Lounge at Warren Wilson College. Â In this public meeting away from Council chambers, Council sets priorities for the coming year. Â Click here to see the agenda for the retreat, which will run 11am – 5pm today and 9am – 1pm on Saturday.
Finding our collective will on issues like affordable housing, sustainability, and transportation in light of the expected budget shortfalls will make for some creative problem-solving. Â I’m grateful for the opportunity to partner with the other members of Council, all of whom are faithful public servants with brains in their heads.
Anyway, that’s my next couple of days. Â What are y’all up to?
