Listen to your taxpayers

Asheville City Council should hear a historical presentation about the Basilica, so they understand why we should absolutely squash plans to build a hotel in front of such an incredible jewel in our town.

Put a park instead; listen to your taxpayers! Bring it to a vote if you have to — do what is right — this town has a tourism economy because it is pretty and unique. Don't screw it up and fill it full of high-rise hotels.

    The proposed hotel will
    infringe less on the Basilica than the current substandard area activity.
