Reader survey

The city is seeking public feedback on the temporary initiatives launched this spring in support of safe business operations and customer access during COVID-19.

The initiatives, which have included Shared Streets, Temporary Parklets, Expansion on Private Lots, Expansion on Public Sidewalks and 10-minute Curbside Pickup Zones, have enabled over 100 businesses and organizations in Asheville to quickly expand outdoors into adjacent public spaces and parking lots.

While these temporary initiatives were launched in response to specific needs during the pandemic, the City would like to collect public feedback on the successes and impacts of each initiative to assess possibilities for longer-term programs.

The survey will remain open through Sept. 20 and is available at
