Fixing Asheville’s Streets Together

tree-root-pipe_30763

Problems

  • Paved roads all around Asheville are crumbling.
  • Asheville needs more and better sidewalks.
  • Develop and implement a comprehensive Sidewalk Improvement Plan so sidewalk funds are used where they do the most to protect pedestrian safety.
  • Poorly designed “traffic calmers” are creating traffic hazards.
  • Too many street signs are obscured by tree branches.
  • Asheville’s streets were not properly cleared of snow during the past two winters resulting in traffic accidents and disruption to local businesses.

Solutions

  • Asheville taxpayers subsidize the Civic Center $750,000 annually. Buncombe County Tourist Development Authority should contribute hotel room tax money to the Civic Center freeing up Asheville tax money for street improvements.
  • Since properly installed sidewalks last for 70-90 years, sell 30 year bonds to pay for new sidewalk construction.
  • Asheville is not a walkable city. The top priorities for new sidewalks should be main corridors such as Hendersonville Road, Old Leicester Highway, New Haw Creek Road, and Lakeshore Drive.
  • Asheville’s Public Works Department schedules sidewalk repairs based on complaints.
  • Remove dangerous traffic calmers. Trim back excessive plant growth.
  • Trim tree branches and replace broken streetlights ASAP.
  • Clear the snow off the streets before car traffic turns it into impassable blocks of ice. Utilize Public Works and Water Resources trucks and personnel for faster snow removal.
