Some days, I feel it is but an evil plot to make me sound like a broken record, but here goes:

Planners want to avoid gentrification in the East of the Riverway renewal project. Repeating doesn’t make it so, but former Asheville City Councilman Dr. Carl Mumpower used to always tell us planning creates elite communities. The logic is, the amount of regulation is proportional to costs of compliance. If you want The Wee People around, you don’t price them out of the market by making them buy vapours.
