The Pi Beta Phi Fraternity, specifically the seven person Grand Council, has started negotiations to sell and develop the property they have owned and used for education since 1912 and has been home to the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts since 1968. According to Emily Tarr, Grand president of the fraternity, \"this development is another opportunity to benefit the community.\" Mrs Tarr is completely wrong. The development of the Arrowmont property will do nothing to benefit Gatlinburg. Building more tourist traps of excess consumption and greed is of no advantage to the community. Please sign this petition to send a message to Mrs. Tarr and the other members of the Pi Phi Grand Council that you do not support this development and you want to save Arrowmont! YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DONATE TO iPETITIONS TO SIGN. THIS IS NOT A MESSAGE BOARD, THIS IS A PETITION. WHILE WE APPRECIATE YOUR INTEREST, IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO REMARK ON SOMETHING YOU HAVE READ PLEASE COMMENT @ www.savearrowmont.wordpress.com/
