Subject: Widening Merrimon Ave
With reference to the above proposed widening of Merrimon Ave., I request that the City of Asheville and residents of N. Asheville have some say in the design and construction. Most residents of N. Asheville have been here our entire lives and do realize that the widening is necessary for growth and safety. However we would like to preserve Beaver Lake and the Bird Sanctuary. Please take “ Road Diet’ and “ Complete Street” ideas into consideration as they would incorporate bike lanes be more people friendly and slow the traffic down.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
