In June 2017, the Asheville City Council created a Blue Ribbon Task Force for the purpose of discussing and ultimately advising the City Council about the creation of a new advisory board focused on human relations within the city.
The Blue Ribbon Committee had its first meeting Aug. 23, during which Vice Mayor Gwen Wisler reviewed the committee’s goals and objectives.
The Blue Ribbon Committee on a Human Relations Commission has now announced the following meeting dates:
- September 6 at 5:30 p.m., Asheville Public Works Building, 161 S. Charlotte Street, First Floor Conference Room
- September 20 at 5:30 p.m., Stephens Lee, 30 G.W. Carver Ave., Afterschool Room
