Civic Center renaming needs to be negotiated with citizens

Asheville City Council needs to vote “no” on naming the Asheville Civic Center the U.S. Cellular Center (it sounds like a place to take your cell phone).

It was very, very deceptive of City Council member Jan Davis to not mention this renaming before the election and to decide on it and not ask the public citizens what they want to name it.

Council needs to vote “no” on this, and then negotiate a deal in sunlight.

They should vote to continue, request bids and hold discussions to see if residents want to proceed. If (and only if) the reaction is positive, they should get their best bid and then move forward.
