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.
03/26/19 Editor’s Note: The referenced original request (Buncombe County / City of Asheville – Permits and Conditional Zoning (Census Tract 14)) has not been fully “Completed”, and is still marked as “Government Processing Request” on our site. Details of the request:
…” all permits applied for and conditional zoning change requests made between January 1, 2019 to February 27, 2019 within the zip code 28806. If possible, we are particularly focused on Census Tract 14 (the Emma neighborhood), but if it’s not easy to filter through census tract, we can work with the data from all of 28806 and look through it. Most of our census tract is within Buncombe County, however we would also like to request City data if possible.”
We sent two emails (one to AVL City, one to Bunc. Co. Gov.) regarding the request – On the City’s part, the request is still ”Open” and we’re following up. However, the County has “Completed” their portion of the request, in that Kassi Day said (Mar 8, 2019, 4:20 PM), “After a review of this request, we do not have an available report that mines this data set, we have no record responsive to this request.”
The new request we sent to Bunc. Co. Gov. will be as follows:
Title: Permits and Conditional Zoning for Buncombe County, Jan – March 2019
Message: We would like to request all permits applied for and conditional zoning change requests made between January 1, 2019 and March 27, 2019 in Buncombe County.
We are particularly focused on Census Tract 14 (the Emma neighborhood), but would like the data for all of Buncombe County. Any data set is acceptable that includes locations in Census Tract 14 and also includes geographic information (address, property id or x, y location) so that we can figure out ourselves what’s there. The information must be machine readable so we can sort through the data.
Thank you so much!
