I’m writing because of a recent John Boyle column in the Asheville Citizen-Times regarding Stewart Coleman and the Parkside condos.
It seems that money can’t be made without progress, which is sometimes seen in the form of tax dollars resulting from construction of things like high-rise condos such as those proposed by Stewart Coleman. And that progress can’t be made without destroying something, such as a park with a magnolia tree.
I refer Stewart Coleman to Joyce Kilmer’s “Trees,” which will remain long after his condos have crumbled.
As for those responsible for this “progression,” is it not possible that framed pictures of all of the county commissioners with their names and dates for intended re-election be hung in some public building?
