City holding five 'Council Conversations' this fall

In an effort to improve communication between the City Council and Hendersonville residents, the City Council will be hosting five community meetings throughout the city

this fall.

The “Council Conversations” will be held at strategic locations in Hendersonville.

"The Council has made it a priority to meet with our citizens to discuss our vision for the community and receive feedback about what we are doing well and what we can improve on," Mayor Barbara Volk said. "We believe the best way to do this is to get out of City Hall and meet our residents in or near their neighborhoods.”

Each meeting will be hosted by an individual council member with City Manager John Connet and staff in attendance to help answer questions or provide information. Out of respect to everyone’s time, each “conversation” will be limited to one hour.

“We hope these meetings will be well attended, because we want to hear from our residents!” Mayor Pro Tem Ron Stephens said.

Here's the schedule:
October 15 – Union Grove Baptist Church – 901 Robinson Terrace – 7:00 PM – Hosted by Mayor Barbara Volk
October 29  – Hendersonville Church of Christ – 1975 Haywood Road – 7:00 PM - Hosted by Mayor Pro Tem Ron Stephens
November 5  – Ebenezer Baptist Church - 2557 Chimney Rock Road – 6:00 PM - Hosted by Councilman Jeff Miller
November 19  – Henderson County Health Sciences Center – Room 2003 – 801 6th Avenue West – 6:00 PM - Hosted by Councilman Jerry Smith
December 3  – Henderson County Chamber of Commerce 204 Kanuga Road – 7:00 PM - Hosted by Councilman Steve Caraker

The City Council has made an effort to locate a meeting in close proximity to all Hendersonville residents. However, residents are welcome to attend the meeting that is most convenient for them. For more information contact Connet at (828) 233-3201.
