A proposed permitting process for the Occupy Asheville encampment (which the protesters have rejected), is the main issue on Asheville City Council's agenda tonight. Council will also consider a 92-unit apartment complex in South Asheville and changes to the city's annexation plans, among other issues.
Tonight, Asheville City Council will vote on a proposal that would allow protest encampments — like the one Occupy Asheville members have established — in front of City Hall as long as individual campers received permits first. The ordinance would also allow demonstrations after the 10 p.m. park curfew in front of the Vance Monument.
An ordinance banning camping on city property — drafted in response to the Occupy Asheville encampment in front of City Hall — is back on Asheville City Council's agenda for the Jan. 10 meeting. The ban is there despite a Council committee voting 2-1 to instead send forward a permitting process for the protesters. However, the Council members on that committee say that they don't anticipate the issue coming up for a vote, and instead expect a staff report on permits for the Occupy campers.
A proposed ban on camping on city property — drafted in response to Occupy Asheville's encampment in front of City Hall — didn't make it past Asheville City Council's Public Safety Committee. Instead the committee directed staff at its meeting this afternoon to look at a permitting process for campers.
