Here’s the press release from RiverLink:
Asheville — The RiverLink Bus Tour offers answers about Asheville’s past, present and future: What is the Wilma Dykeman RiverWay Plan and what does it hold for Asheville’s future? What are the plans for the old Cotton Mill down on Riverside Drive? How did the Flood of 1916 change the river area landscape?
The next tour will be Thursday, Jan. 17 when the public is invited to tour the French Broad and Swannanoa Rivers with RiverLink. The tour departs from the Asheville Area Chamber of Commerce parking area. We ask that guests arrive at about 11:45 so the tour can start promptly at noon.
This is an opportunity to see the improvements that have occurred and hear what is coming over the next several months and years to make our rivers better places to work, live and play. You will learn some local history and visit some streets and neighborhoods you have never seen before.
The bus will meet you at the Asheville Area Chamber of Commerce (36 Montford Avenue) and return you there. This tour is free for RiverLink members. Non-members cost $15 per person. Lunch is not provided but you are welcome to bring your own. Reservations are required. Please go to www.riverlink.org to make your reservation online or call Jess at 828-252-8474 ext. 17.
