Swannanoa incorporation takes in too much territory
The boundary of the new Town of Swannanoa as proposed is 18.09 square miles, which is too large, and includes too many undeveloped parcels of farm and forest land.

Unbelievable that they'd try such a land grab! Even in forced annexation, a very unpopular action, the rules prohibit the taking of a territory that is more than 60% completely unoccupied and sparsely undeveloped in the other 40%. This is a corruption of what was intended when incorporation ethics were devised. Such nerve. Let's hope the informed citizens of Swannanoa are to wise to fall for the hype and will turn out to vote "no" on Nov.3

as a resident of swannanoa, i'm with you frank. i will definitely be showing up for a "no" vote on nov. 3rd. not only is this a disgusting land grab that infringes on the rights of asheville and swannanoa residents. it's also a fascist tactic for these corporations to bring this to the house right before they planned the referendum. and the residents won't even get to vote on who will represent them in their city council. they are automatically appointed by the state. so, this is needs to be voted down no matter where you stand on the issue of incorporation itself. this is fascism.
