Here is the letter Town Hall East sent to the Planning Commission on October 7. We will host a community Zoom meeting — date to be announced — to hear your opinions before City Council meets on Tuesday, November 3, to either approve or reject the Planning Commission’s recommendation. It recommended on October 8 to approve the development.

October 7, 2020

Planning Commissioners:

The Town Hall East Neighborhood Association Board supports Mr. Lansden’s overall project at 2625 Asheville Highway, though we would prefer that the rear portion be zoned for multifamily for his proposed 95 affordable housing units and the front two acres be zoned commercial rather than the whole property rezoned to C—G1. Mr. Lansden currently has applied to rezone the entire property from its current Office Designation to C-G1.
We are very concerned that, should the development not be realized, the C-G1 Zone exposes this property to a variety of permitted commercial uses that we would oppose. This is a sensitive site with residential on two sides and a church, and has prominent exposure along Asheville Highway. Development on this site will permanently influence the character and future development of this area.
We ask City Council to agree to initiate a rezone of this property back to Office, or its equivalent under the current zoning code, should the proposed project not proceed.

Sincerely,

Tobias Kight,
Vice President, Town Hall East

Planning Commission is recommending approval of Mr. Landsen’s rezone application for 2625 Asheville Highway (old Holiday Inn Hotel). Mr. Landsen will give a short presentation and answer questions at our next neighborhood Zoom meeting Nov 9th at 7 PM. We are working with Mr. Landsen to have another information event as well. He proposes to develop 95 affordable apartment units and have about two acres of commercial development fronting Asheville Highway. He is seeking the C-G Zone (a mixed use zone) on the entire property which permits apartments as well as several commercial uses.
