City Closes Riverfront Deal
Updated: Monday, April 29 2013, 10:11 PM EDT
A popular pathway along the French Broad River now belongs to the City of Asheville. Two small parcels between the French Broad River Park and Carrier Park were privately owned. The owner had been negotiating with the city for years and was previously asking $225,000. The city closed a deal last week and bought both parcels for $50,000. Park goers are thrilled.
