City Invites River Recreation Plans and Ideas Discussion

Asheville Paddlers-on-riverASHEVILLE NC – Each third Thursday of the month, the City of Asheville Riverfront Redevelopment Office hosts Open Office Hours at City Hall. On April 21, please join us from 3 to 5 p.m. to talk about plans and ideas to support river recreation. These meetings are informal in that you can drop in at any time.

Topics of discussion will include:

  • New and improved French Broad river access points;
  • A community-led proposal for a whitewater feature on the river;
  • Public gardens and urban forestry opportunities;
  • The City of Asheville’s application for a 2016 North Carolina’s Parks and Recreation Trust Fund grant. If awarded, the grant would provide improved recreation facilities and public art opportunities for the RADTIP (RiverWay) project and 14 Riverside Drive renovation.

We’ll meet from 3-5pm on the 6th Floor of City Hall (notice, this is a change from the usual 5th floor location). Representatives from the following organizations may be in attendance: the French Broad River Whitewater Park organization; NC Wildlife Resources Commission; the Parks and Greenways Foundation;  Asheville Greenworks; Boy Scouts of America Daniel Boone Council and RiverLink.
