Goodness gracious, what a no brainer! And the diocese even offered $300,000 more for the parcel.
The downtown area has only one small green space (Pritchard Park), which is severely overused. A landscaped green space in front of the U.S. Cellular Center and, of course, the treasured Basilica, is absolutely a no brainer. We the taxpayers demand an open-minded approach to this.
Asheville needs this green space and the additional $300,000.
