Mountain Xpress. Council: Yes to RAD zoning, no to short-term rentals

“I think the whole point of the form-based code is to look ahead and to envision what it is in the future,” said Wisler. “And I think just going with what we have as the status quo is not really the appropriate way to look at this. I clearly believe that adding more short-term rentals, or even having short-term rentals anywhere in a residential area, is inconsistent with our vision for the River Arts District and inconsistent with the comprehensive plan.”

WLOS. City Districting

Vice Mayor Gwen Wisler said the council wanted to give residents an opportunity to weigh in and will take their decision to the state.
"It's not completely clear now as to what would happen if citizens won't vote for it, but this will give citizens the opportunity to say no and then follow up with state as to how we go forward."

Mountain Xpress. Smaller project, bigger budget, approved for RAD

“So the public input on this project has been stellar — up to a point,” the vice mayor said. “But then, when the bids came in, it felt like radio silence.” Why, she continued, didn’t staff let Council members and the public know the magnitude of the cost overruns in time to allow some opportunity to have a say in which the portions of the project will be delayed?

Asheville Citizen-Times. Scaled-back $54M RAD overhaul still biggest in Asheville history

Vice Mayor Gwen Wisler raised questions about how long it took for word to get out about the bids... She raised questions about dropping projects that would connect low-income communities. Those include Livingston and Town Branch.
