The City of Asheville strives to always listen to our community. We have heard there is a need to spend more time on the Community Reparations Commission application process. Staff are working internally to ensure an inclusive process that engages our Black community members.
The City invites community members to take a survey of the proposed application found here. The purpose of the survey is to make sure the application is easily understandable, and that residents can get involved in the process. The survey will close Monday, November 1.
The City anticipates that the Community Reparations Commission application will open in mid-November. We commit to letting our partners and community members know when to apply.
