George: Even though I live in Hendersonville I ride all over Asheville and Hendersonville on my bicycle

Even though I live in Hendersonville I ride all over Asheville and Hendersonville on my bicycle. There will be bicycles on Merimon long after the combustion engine driven car is gone.
Thinking about traffic flow in “combustion engine driven cars” needs will probably make the widening outdated by the time it’s complete or shortly thereafter and is therefore wasteful.
I could weigh in on all the legalese and City intent documents, but that would be missing the bigger point – how and why we use cars is changing fast.
Hold off on this plan for now, please.


Best,

George
