[Regarding “A Dark Cloud: Downtown Dodged a Mall, but Substation Now Looms,” Aug. 10, Xpress, and “Update on City of Asheville and Duke Energy Partnership to Identify a Suitable Site for Duke Energy Rebuild of Critical Power Infrastructure in Downtown Asheville,” Sept. 16, Xpress website:]
Please don’t trade the Rankin Avenue parking lot to Duke! Lexington Avenue is a very special part of downtown, and we need the parking. We also would not want to lose a wonderful tree canopy. We need more trees, not less!
