The City of Asheville is threatening to terminate its lease agreement with Pack Place.
A letter from city manager Gary Jackson claims “repairs and maintenance have been neglected for years” and there is “no indication of any hope to satisfy the necessary requirements.” The letter included an attached list of necessary building maintenance, saying if Pack Place fails to come up with $419,800, the lease may be terminated. The 10-year lease is set to expire at the end of May.
Pack Place board chairman Edward Hay said the city’s claims are “not true” and that it’s too early for the board to respond to the letter.
