The residents of Swannanoa will some day be residents of a town or city. Why do you think asheville is so concerned with the proposed location of the West boundary of Swannanoa? asheville absolutly intends to annex all or part of Swannanoa. The question then becomes, do you want to be a resident of the city of asheville or the Town of Swannanoa?

As a Swannanoa resident, I completely agree with Bill's comment. However, our goal of incorporation is about much more than blocking future annexation by Asheville (or Black Mountain). We just want to be able to control our own destiny, have some control over how our community grows; and most of all, just be able to improve our town. Those of us who grew up here have seen many changes to Swannanoa in our life time, and not all of them good. When we incorporate all the changes still may not be good, but we certainly can help improve the percentage of the good ones.
Asheville City Council, please just stop trying to dictate to us what we should do. From my perspective, you have far more important things to look after inside your current city limits than were we, and how, we propose to put ours.
