Racial disparity study

I would like a copy of the Racial Disparity Study mentioned in the Citizen Times article in July 2017

"In June the city hired a Denver, Colorado firm to do a $320,000 racial disparity study."

    Hi Sarah,

     

    I hope you’ve had a good week.

     

    In reviewing some of the requests on our site recently, we’ve also circled back on checking out the City’s link to the disparity study status at http://www.ashevillenc.gov/departments/comm_public/projects_n_initiatives/disparity_study.htm.

     

    I’d like to as whether there is any update you can provide as to the completion of the study, besides what is on the website.

     

    It is also unclear to us, looking at the site, whether the July community input dates listed on your site have already occurred in 2017, or if that’s slated to occur next week in July, 2018.

     

    Thank you for your assistance.
    Have a great weekend!

    Sunshine Request

    I have been informed that this project is not completed and that no information is available at this time. The project is due to be completed end of July; if the requester would like to submit a new request closer to the time the project is available, please feel free to do so.

     

    When the project is complete, it will need to have Council Planning & Economic Development review and approval to send to City Council for final approval.

     

    For updates and more information, please visit the Disparity Study Project page, located here.

     

    Thank you,
    Sarah

    Sunshine,

     

    I’ve discovered that the study is not complete. We are also still working on providing the drafts and updates requested.

     

    Thanks,

    Hi Ben,

     

    Thank you for the info.

     

    I don’t seem to be able to locate the actual study anywhere at the link you’ve sent. I looked through all documents and links provided therein.

     

    I’d like to further clarify the original request – Can you please provide the actual Disparity Study, as well as any “drafts” or updates that have been provided to the City related to the Disparity Study?

     

    Thank you for your help.
    Have a great day!
