Asheville: Be careful what you wish for.
On Tuesday night, [Oct. 16], City Council voted in favor of The Ellington. They say development will bring in gobs of money—and that’s true.
What they do not tell you is that your property taxes will skyrocket. And so will rents—for small businesses and folks who live in apartments.
That’s the secret City Council will not tell you. Not the Republicans, who are strangely silent on taxes. And not the Democrats, who have lots of personality, but no character.
