Letter in Support of 101 Charlotte Street

As an Asheville resident, I have followed closely the proposed project at 101 Charlotte Street and believe it will enhance the neighborhood and provide many benefits to the community, including:

More housing options to help alleviate the housing shortage and provide different levels of affordability and housing types.

Opportunity for a diversity of Asheville residents to live closer to the Central Business District, with good pedestrian, bike and bus access that will get people out of their cars and supporting local businesses.

Improvements to the sidewalks, the bike lane, and the creation of new public spaces for us all to enjoy.

Economic growth to alleviate some of the tax burden on existing homeowners and help fund our most essential city services.

For these reasons I urge Asheville City Council to approve the conditional zoning request for the 101 Charlotte Street project. Thank you for your consideration.
