In September, Asheville City Council approved a temporary moratorium on the approval of new hotels, which means that no hotel development applications will be approved for a year. The purpose of the moratorium is to allow the City time to further study the issues surrounding tourism and assess the impacts of hotel development, both real and perceived.
To move the process forward, the City hosted a Jan. 9 community conversation on titled “Impacts of Hotels: A Community Discussion,” facilitated by the Urban Land Institute (ULI) of Charlotte. At the Jan. 30 meeting, the ULI will report back to the community. Find more information at this link: http://bit.ly/2SMhYt2
