Locals vs Tourists

We have enough things catered to tourists in Burnsville. We need to focus on the locals in Burnsville.
We need things to make the locals want to stay in Burnsville.
We need homes, well paying jobs, grocery and clothing stores. We need a new movie theater, bowling and other family oriented activities.
We have an emergency housing problem in Yancey County that needs to be addressed. The homes you see are now being turned into an AIRBNB. Locals have no where to live.
I’m sure you may say the locals can go to neighboring counties to live. But they to are facing a housing crisis.
