Subject: Comment on Merrimon Ave. widening proposal
To whom it may concern,
I’m writing to state my opposition to the plan to widen Merrimon Avenue in Asheville for several blocks. I live on Norwood Avenue, just east of Merrimon.
This plan is completely out of step with what most people who live in the neighborhoods surrounding Merrimon Ave. want to see their local street look like – and how they want it to be. To be able to speed through a stretch of several blocks doesn’t serve either people who use the road or neighborhoods. In addition, I find it a gross waste of taxpayer money to put forward a completed plan without having asked for any input first from the city or residents.
