The Mountain Xpress interviewed Todd Okolichany, Asheville’s new planning director. He comes from Fort Lauderdale, and he likely has a lot of good ideas about carrying on the Asheville Way of putting people and their activities in the right places. As for specific issues, he has two-handed answers. Big issues will require research, review, public input, study, etc. before developing ever-evolving plans. Due to the horrible housing crisis in the city, he now lives outside the city limits, in Fletcher.
