    Good morning Sunshine Request,
    Thank you for your request regarding the number of eminent domain seizures involving Kelly (Whitlock) Langteau-Ball and the City of Asheville from 01/03/2005 – 09/21/2018. The city does not maintain a list or database of these, therefore we have no relevant records to your request. (Pursuant to G.S. 132-6.2(e) “Nothing in this section shall be construed to require a public agency to respond to a request for a copy of a public record by creating or compiling a record that does not exist.”)

     

    However, we believe the requester may have some success finding this information by looking through city council minutes and agendas. On our website you can find City Council meeting materials dating back to 2012 and City Council minutes dating back to 1984 here. Additional physical meeting information can be found in our archives and we’re happy to set up an appointment for the requester to come review those in person.

     

    Let me know if you have any questions.
    Best,

     

    Liz Harper (she/her)
    Public Records Officer, City of Asheville
