Asheville City Council preview: going green

At its meeting tonight, Asheville City Council takes a look at financing green energy improvements and establishing a multimodal transportation commission.

The financing is $1.1 million from TD Bank for LED streetlights, a new boiler at the Stephens Lee Center, and new windows at Fire Station 7 in East Asheville. The debt payments will be paid off with savings from the reduced energy costs.

Council will also vote on the creation of the multimodal commission, with members from a number of other city committees including the greenways, bike and pedestrian safety, and transit boards.

Asheville City Council meets at 5 p.m., May 14, on the second floor of City Hall.
