Balsam Grove Residents Speak Out On N.C. 215
Balsam Grove residents took full advantage of their chance to talk to county officials Monday night about their concerns for the future of their community.
Probably the most important issue for the residents is N.C. 215, the steep, winding road that connects Balsam Grove with Rosman to the south and with the Blue Ridge Parkway to the north.
Residents made it clear they're angry, frustrated and worried about the increasingly busy road, which carries everything from large trucks, school and tour buses to bicycle riders. Many who drive it regularly consider the road dangerous.
