On October 9, 2012, at Phil Mechanic Studios, artists and business owners in the River Arts District met with County Commission candidates to discuss the impact of the arts and raise awareness of the impact of the arts on the economy.
Concern for property value and tax increases led to questions about affordable rents and living in the district as well as the West End/Clingman Avenue Neighborhoods. As a follow up to the Candidate Forum, River Arts District Business Association and the Asheville Area Arts Council present IN4M, a series of informational, educational forums to discuss the complexities around increasing property values, taxes and general change in the River Arts District.
