Home Town started this petition to NC DOT and

     The NC DOT is planning to add a grass median and bike lanes along NC 107. This project will most likely displace 55 businesses and at least 5 residences. This will devastate our community members, especially the ones who have been born and raised here in Sylva.

    This will make a tremendous change in the town that we KNOW. So many people will loose their jobs. Their families will lack income for an amount of time, which could cause devastating effects depending on their current stability. The businesses displaced may not find property in Sylva to reconstruct. Some of them may not even want to stay around after the fact. 

     The grass median may look pretty and prevent left turns, but it will not improve traffic or congestion. Imagine the congestion caused by the construction that will take 2+ years to complete. 

    The bicycle lanes will barely be used, just like the bike lanes that were added to other roads/parts of 107. Who wants to ride their bike alongside a busy road? You don't even have to pay road taxes to ride a bike. 

    This project will cost millions of dollars that could be better utilized. A good portion of our town will be destroyed, all for a grass median and bike lanes. If you are against this project, please sign this petition and speak up!
