Investing in Black Mountain's charm is cost-effective
Given the fact that charm is our major industry, and given some recent anti-charm developments around town, I advocate bricking or cobblestoning Cherry Street, which would greatly enhance its charm. Some 50 residents, including merchants on Cherry Street, agree.
I have passed this idea on to town government. Costly, yes, but so is the diminishing of our town’s lucrative charm. If you agree, please let your approval be known.
