I-26 Project-Historic Eligibility of Buildings on Haywood Rd

Hi there,

I own a business on Haywood Rd and the building in which we're located is scheduled to be torn down. We'd like to request any public records regarding the historic eligibility of buildings along our corridor, specifically 474 Haywood Rd, the Meadows Drygoods Building. We're continuing to be told that our building isn't eligible for historic preservation, and we would like to see any and all communication regarding our building and this project and specifically want to see any communication with NCDOT, as we're concerned and don't understand why the NCDOT has any say at all about the historic standing of a building.

    Good afternoon Sophia,

     

    We submitted this same request through NCDOT’s online public data portal last week and have yet to hear back as to if it’s being processed or not. Can you provide any update here?

    **Editor’s Note 06/07/19: As of now we have not back from Sophia Campbell.

     

    Today we called the phone number for the Asheville NCDOT Division, Resident Engineer’s Office at 828-251-6171 [which has since been changed to 828-250-3000], as provided to us in an earlier email from Terry White (City of AVL).

     

    We were told today that the best way to submit a records request relating to NCDOT was through their online public data portal. Therefore, just now we have “re-sent” this request via NCDOT’s online form, and will check on this again in one week if we haven’t received a response.

     

    Thank you for using Sunshine Request!
