Hendersonville Lightning: Anti-road widening candidates file for Village Council seats

Candidates aligned with the group that opposed the Highland Lake Road widening in Flat Rock were the first to sign up for the 2019 municipal elections when filing opened at noon today at the Henderson County Board of Elections. . .

As expected when Coletta announced last month that she would run to rejoin the council she served from 2013 to 2017, the forces that opposed the Highland Lake Road project and that has called for more openness now have a slate of candidates to support. If the Cultural Landscape Group candidates swept three council seats and if Weedman won the mayoral election, the slow-growth movement would presumably control four votes on the seven-member council (the mayor votes to break a tie). Weedman cast the only no vote when the Village Council voted last year to endorse the Highland Lake Road project.”

  1. The road is NOT A DONE DEAL. It would ruin our new park and would be the first link of road widening that would eventually destroy Flat Rock as we know and love it. If the new slate is elected they can stop it and save Flat Rock for our descendents. Sally July 9
