"Old Coggins Farm" Development Unsuitable for Riceville/Warren Wilson/Old Farm School Road Community

Development plans for the historic Coggins land on Old Farm School Road in Asheville, NC, as described by potential buyer Case Enterprise, LLC, include 382 units (including 60 condos for eldercare), a farm-to-table restaurant, 85 acres of open space, a farming operation, an elementary school, offices, and retail space on 169 acres. The master plan calls for a zoning change that would convert 108 of 169 acres from R-2 (Residential District) to PS (Public Service District). We, the undersigned, find the "Old Coggins Farm" development in its current form unsuitable for Old Farm School Road. We are concerned about a significant increase of traffic on area roads, and the impact the development would have on the character of the community. We also have concerns regarding the development's impact on the environment, including wildlife, soil stability, and water quality, including that of Bull Creek and the Swannanoa River.

We, the undersigned, ask that the Buncombe County Board of Commissioners not allow the "Old Coggins Farm" development, in its current form, to move forward.
