Staff Analysis of the Legislation

Directs the City of Asheville, which currently elects all governing board members at-large, to create electoral districts for all council offices except mayor, which would remain elected at large. Imposes a deadline of November 1, 2017, to complete this redistricting and associated city charter amendments. In the event the City does not draw its own district maps, imposes a system of six electoral districts plus the office of mayor. (version 1)
