Asheville’s network of greenways and bike paths is currently expanding with new construction along Reed Creek. This second phase will extend the current path south towards downtown, paralleling Broadway, and nearly tripling the greenway’s current length!
The Asheville Greenway Commission is seeking input on their next moves in our city. They are hosting a drop in session to view their current plans, and looking for new comments moving forward. Your input will help guide the commission’s priorities and identify new potential corridors to pursue.
The meeting is at City Hall, on Thursday August 11 from 4:30-6:30. If you cannot attend you may also email or mail your written comments (details below).

Asheville, NC – The City of Asheville’s Greenway Commission will host a public meeting to receive citizen recommendations pertaining to the implementation of municipal greenway projects via the Capital Improvement Project budget.
