The Committee’s regular meeting time is the first Thursday of every month at 9:30 a.m., 5th Floor Large Conference Room, Asheville City Hall.

Affordable Housing Policy Recommendations are the result of six months of interviews between the Affordable Housing Advisory Committee (AHAC) and non-profit, for-profit, and public housing developers. The purpose of these interviews was to learn more about developers experiences and perceptions with building affordable housing in the area in order to develop a list of recommendations for increasing future affordable developments. Through these interviews, AHAC identified top priorities and a full list of recommendations to assist City Council in developing more effective policies and incentives.
