(March 2021) Request for Asheville, NC City Council emails related to Hotel Development Ordinance and Overlay Map 02/01/21 – present

Hi City of Asheville, NC Government,

I'd like to make a public records request for the following information:

Please provide all emails sent to, and sent from, any member of Asheville City Council regarding the Hotel Development Ordinance or Overlay Map. This should include emails sent to / sent from members of the public, between Council Members, and between City Council and City Staff.

Please provide all responsive email records from the specific time period of February 01, 2021 through the date the query is run.

Thank you for your assistance!
-------

[Editor's Note to AVLGov: If possible, please provide some indication of an approximate timeline for completion, and we will wait to follow up again until the time period you specify.

Additionally - As discussed with Liz, we'd ask that for all "communications" (emails, texts, etc) type of requests, that you please provide all .pdfs, files, attachments, videos, hyperlinks, etc. that are indicated within the responsive records. For example: A .pdf that is an attachment within an email, should also be provided as a document along with the responsive emails.

Please include all of those additional documents where applicable, as relates to the requested information above.

If the records are ultimately too large to send via emailed file share, we'd ask that you please create a public Google Drive folder / link or some other file format to transfer the files. Thank you for your help!]

Editor’s Note: Sunshine Request makes no claim as to the veracity of any statements or information contained in any of the requests, or public records, we receive.
