Commissioners to consider greenways plan



8/31/2012 - Commissioners to consider greenways plan
by Asheville Citizen Times

ASHEVILLE -- The Buncombe County Board of Commissioners is scheduled to consider a plan Tuesday to put greenway paths through several parts of the county.

The plan identifies corridors where greenways would go but does not say when they would be built.

A staff report says county parks officials may seek funding for some of the plan during the process of drafting the 2013-14 county budget.

Priority greenway corridors include:

o Along the French Broad River from central Asheville north to the Madison County line.

o Along the Swannanoa River from central Asheville east to the McDowell County line.

o Along Sweeten Creek Road from Biltmore Village south to Arden.

o Paralleling the French Broad River and Interstate 26 from West Asheville south to the Henderson County line.

o From West Asheville to Hominy Creek Park.

o From N.C. 251 west of Weaverville up the Reems Creek Valley to Beech.

o From Mills Gap Road west through future Collier Park, Lake Julian Park and along Long Shoals Road.

o From East Asheville to Reynolds High School.

Commissioners are also scheduled to approve a list of values to be used during the coming countywide property revaluation.

Commissioners meet at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday at 30 Valley St. in downtown Asheville.
