French Broad River West Greenway Info Open House

By on March 3, 2016


French-Broad-River-West-GreenwayGreenways are beneficial to community members because they provide safe and fun ways for everyone to get around town. The Asheville Greenway Committee and the City of Asheville will be hosting two drop-in style informational open houses for upcoming greenway projects.

French Broad River West and Beaucatcher are the two longest pieces of the River to Ridge Greenway Network, providing “bookends” to this unique transportation network. Stewart Inc., the designing consultants for the Beaucatcher and the French Broad River West Greenways, will be available during both meetings to answer questions about these two exciting designs. Light refreshments will be served.
