Don’t lose momentum: repurpose the Momentum site

I live near the Momentum site on Broadway in north Asheville, and I read recently in a People Advocating Real Conservancy newsletter that Momentum will not be built after all, and that all those downed trees and chain-link fences will just remain there until someone else buys the land and develops it.

I understand that City Council didn't create this problem, but I have hopes for two things: One, that the Momentum site will be acquired as public land, and that it is turned into a park or other public space (I would like to see more tennis courts put in, but that's another matter); two, that City Council will help ensure the restoration of abandoned building sites by requiring insurance in the form of performance bonds before a building permit is issued.

Thank you, City Council, for listening, and for remaining diligent in your effort to protect our great quality of life in Asheville.
