Charlotte Street discombobulated

I know the city of Asheville has done a study on Charlotte Street to find out ways that traffic could not be so congested and the sidewalks more pedestrian-friendly. Please do not waste the taxpayers' dollars on traffic “calmers,” a roundabout, or a turning a lane into a turning-lane-only.

Also, people need to remember that at certain times of the day, traffic is just going to be more congested. These would be during rush hours. In the evening, I have noticed that Charlotte Street is more pedestrian-friendly. Please just leave Charlotte Street alone.

It is a parallel to Merrimon Avenue. There are so many ways to get around Asheville. Changing Charlotte Street in any form would dissipate the ambiance.

Please spend city tax dollars somewhere else where every one could "win."
