This link is for the history buffs of Asheville because it’s a great example of two things:

  1. An awful decision almost made by the City of Asheville to raze nine downtown blocks of Asheville to build a pedestrian mall.
  2. How people power killed the plan that many considered a “done deal.”

The Mall That Almost Ate Asheville shows what the people of Asheville can do when we unite to fight governments that just won’t listen!  Together, we can defeat the “Highway That’s About to Eat Asheville!”
