I am writing regarding the proposed high-rise in the town of Asheville on property that was [deeded] in perpetuity to the citizens … for a park. This [project] would mean uprooting a magnolia tree and building a high-rise building in the center of town.
Please let us unite to forbid the building of this proposed high-rise in downtown Asheville. We are becoming a pay-for-profit, which will have us looking like Pigeon Forge—God forbid!
