Appalachian State University and the Boone Town Council are
still at odds over the location of a proposed College of Education building.
While both entities agree an education building is needed- some council and
community members fear the Howard Street location would be detrimental to
downtown traffic and would not fit in with current zoning requirements.
A public hearing has been scheduled for January 10 to
address the issue. Both town and university officials are optimistic about
reaching a compromise. The meeting is at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers on
Blowing Rock Road, and concerned community members are asked to attend.
Tell us what you think!
