Save trees and affordability in South Slope

Please sign the Collier Woods petition

This is a petition asking the Asheville City Council to help preserve the Collier Avenue wood, along with as many trees as possible in the proposed Coxe/Asheland development. The owner of both areas is proposing to build 5 massive structures on the lower end of Coxe and Asheland and another apartment complex at 11 Collier, on the property now occupied by a small but significant stand of two dozen hundred-year-old native oaks. The developer’s plans are currently undergoing the City review process. While the Coxe/Asheland development requires City Council approval, the Collier Avenue building plans do not, meaning that the Collier plans will get approved if they are in compliance with existing ordinances which currently do not prevent the removal of trees. Therefore, the petition is addressing City Council members asking them not to approve the Coxe/Asheland development unless the 11 Collier Avenue wood is saved.


The more signatures the petition receives, the more significant its impact.

Every individual’s signature counts, couples may want to sign individually, and each signer may want to forward, or otherwise share, the request for signatures with their family and acquaintances, particularly those in and around Asheville.
