Controversy looms over private property along river, West Asheville Watch reports

A controversy is brewing alongside a quiet section of the French Broad River.

Reported Aug. 31 at West Asheville Watch (for a map of the properties, follow the link to WAW’s website)

French Broad River Greenway is one of the coolest things that could happen to Asheville; linking the entire city through a park. Who wouldn’t want that? Which is why the appearance of “For Sale” and Realtor signs have West Asheville residents troubled. Mr. Robert Burris, whose family has owned the property since the 50′s, believes he is under the strain of legal and insurance liabilities of having folks walk, ride, swim and – well, “trespass on his property”.
