Subject: Merrimon Avenue widening project
Hello. I support Asheville On Bikes and oppose the Merrimon Avenue widening project. More pavement and faster car speeds are not the solutions we need for our already over crowded city. We need to encourage and endorse alternative modes of transportation by making greenways a priority. On a global level, we need to discourage the use of environment polluting automobiles and start making bike and foot travel more attractive for everyone. This plan only discourages that. For the sake of the planet, we need to change our ways.
