Wow. The university is trying to be Cullowhee. That Town Center is going to be put on a Floodplain without any barriers to protect it! Myself and a lot of the community want a real downtown along Old Cullowhee Road and the Tuckasegee River, but now that isn't going to happen. The area will remain a hole in the wall and the Town Center will become the downtown and nothing will be traditional about it and nothing along Old Cullowhee Road will ever get fixed. And then we'll be stuck with the mediocre civic facilities we presently have because the County always takes the easy way out. CuRvE's vision is never going to happen and neither will my vision because the University has stepped in and taken over in its attempt to bring chain stores, not local businesses, to Cullowhee. We will all regret this later if it happens. No sparkling downtown near the River will ever happen, only a faux-downtown near the Highway will exist. What a shame.
