I just moved here and found out the city of Asheville
wants an overlook of the city on the parkway.

While i love Asheville i go on the parkway to get
away from the city. The chamber of commerce
and others leading Asheville think this an
asset to boost tourism. These people are
destructive!\

Let the city know how you feel if you
don't want an Asheville overlook
on the parkway.

Asheville is a city!
Blue Ridge Parkway is
a beautiful pristine
place of trees and mountains
mostly. If you want views
of downtown go to the
grove park inn or on
town mountain ans some
other places.
Western North Carolina
does not revolve around
Asheville.
Asheville is not the center
of the universe.

I personally would like a overlook of the city on the parkway. The people who live in the area and visitors would be able to see our beautiful city. I have driven up Town Mountain Road to look over the city. I have a beautiful picture taken at night that looks over our city. I have purchased several of the prints to give my friends as gifts. I agree with the Chamber of Commerce and other Officials that the overlook would be a asset to boost tourism.

Tourism is killing Asheville! To much overdevelopment,
to many greedy people got hteir hands in the cookie
jar and now they want an overlook of the city
on the mountainous parkway? So people can see a
bunch of manmade buildings? Asheville is full of itself.
I live in Boone and its not perfect but the people of
Boone who run the town are not selfish enough to
have an overlook of Boone. By the way Asheville
is ugly now with all of the overdevelopment Boone
is getting that way.

An overlook is a great idea. I could pull in, pull it out, point it at Asheville, take a piss, and from my vantage point, it would look like I was pissing on the the town.

I will take great pleasure in pissing on you. When it rains, look to see if it is yellow. I know you will.

Asheville being ruined by developers. Its
getting worse every year.
City council obesses with turning
Asheville into Atlanta.
Asheville should take lessons from
Burlington Vermont. Burlington
just a little smaller than Asheville but
quaint. Asheville is extremely full of itself
to the point the place is turning into a joke.
I'm a native, but I'm moving thank God!
I hope I never hear the words green, organic,
gay pride, or crafty ever again!

Ditto. If these transplants want organic, let them go shovel out a barn stall. Maybe they can get their gay pride tended to while they are at it.

Here we go again, the little girl allowed back on the computer...it is very obvious that Michelle, j-lo, and Ashley Leonard is the same individual. If you really want people to believe you are a different individual, please use spell check, complete sentences and add fact to your post.

If you live in Boone, how do you know so many facts about Asheville ?

Only thing i want to see
on the parkway are mountains
trees, waterfalls and
animals. No urbanization
of the parkway. I agree
with people asheville
is so full of itself.

As for the post above
Asheville and Boone
are not far from each other.
If that person has spen anytime
in either they would know
Asheville is an arrogant
self serving place full
of epople with no morals
and that Boone is a noral
college town and full of nice
people. If I could
I would rather live in Boone myself.

Rylea, After reading your comment, I'm in agreement that Michelle,j-lo, and Ashley Leonard is the same person. If you will read the last post this individuals has created another identity for themselves. Do you know why this person continues to post such negative comments about Asheville?

Asheville is ugly now
with the Hotel Indigo
and butt# ugly modern
condos all over the place.

The city has no waterfront either.
Really overrated. Only saving
grace is the parkway near it,
but the leaders of Asheville
seem hell bent on destroying
the best parts about the place.
I lived there for 2 years
happy to be living in Roanoke,Va.
now full of normal people
who are not crazy.

Asheville chamber of commerce are all probably
originally from Florida.

As are most of the developers.
We need pristine areas of
natural beauty like the blueridge
parkway and he national parks.

Asheville has turned into a greedy corporate
souless place.
Last trip to grove park inn
100.00 parking fee seriously!
