ASHEVILLE - Proposed rule changes coming before City Council could alter the look and feel of West Asheville's main boulevard, including blocking short-term tourist rentals. Council is expected to vote Tuesday on new zoning rules for Haywood Road. The changes would add flexibility to development rules and help spur new construction, particularly on a portion of the road below Beacham's Curve, city planning and urban design staff said.
ASHEVILLE - A cluster of properties that include a former gas station on Broadway Street are now slated to become commercial buildings with apartments, including eight affordable units. The four lots to be used for the estimated $10-$15 million mixed-use project back up to the Reed Creek Greenway in the Montford neighborhood. The city owns one of the properties, the lot northwest of the former gas station and mini-mart at the corner of Cauble Street.
ASHEVILLE - The City Council election has been over for weeks — so, what's going on now? Up next are some pretty basic happenings: One incumbent and two new council members will be sworn in Dec. 5. Directly after that, though, the action starts: That same night the seven council members will vote for a vice mayor, as they do every two years following an election. That could mean keeping the newly re-elected Gwen Wisler in that position or picking someone new.
Council approves 133-apartment complex in #Asheville River Arts District. 85 public parking spaces but no affordable units. 10 artists studios. Arguable about their affordability: $300-400 estimated.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
