Asheville City Council will continue meeting in person June 22 and July 27  at the Harrah’s Cherokee Center – Asheville Banquet Hall, 87 Haywood St.


This comes on the heels of not only Gov. Roy Cooper’s easing of statewide facemask and social distancing restrictions per Executive Order 209 but also Buncombe County’s action this week rescinding the local State of Emergency.


The agenda is posted at this link.


For our in-person meetings, anyone wishing to speak live at the meeting will be required to attend in person, and are encouraged to sign-up at the door.


To accommodate those who do not yet feel secure attending in person, or those who are precluded from attending because of schedules or other personal factors, City Council will continue to engage with those members of our community using the following options for participation:


  • Remote comments via email ( or voicemail (855-925-2801, meeting code 8265) will continue to be accepted and reviewed by City Council prior to the meeting so long as they are received by 9 a.m. on June 22.  
  • The meeting will be streamed on the City’s YouTube Channel which can be accessed through the YouTube icon on the front page of the City’s website or through the City’s Virtual Engagement Hub also accessible through the front page of the City website.
  • You may listen to the meeting via phone (855-925-2801, meeting code 8265).
  • Finally, the public can communicate with the Council by emailing them directly at any time –

We appreciate everyone’s patience and virtual participation as we worked through new ways of engaging and communicating with each other during the pandemic.
