Press release

From RiverLink:

As part of its ongoing riverfront improvement efforts the Town of Woodfin is pleased to invite the public to share its ideas and desires for the creation of a new riverside park on land donated by the Silverline Plastics Company expressly for this purpose. The meeting will take place at the Woodfin Town Hall at 90 Elk Mountain Road, Woodfin, NC 28804 on Monday October 28 from 6:30 to 8 pm and light refreshments will be served.

RiverLink is pleased to be assisting the Town in gathering information for this latest addition to the Town of Woodfin’s riverside offerings. Woodfin town planners will have on display base maps and other information for the public to write comments and draw their ideas on and will be available to provide additional information as needed.

Please feel free to bring or email to information@riverlink.org photos and or graphics of park amenities that you would like to see incorporated into the design of this new riverside space. Attendees are invited to collaborate on a collage of ideas and graphics for this exciting new development in Woodfin.

According to Mayor Jery Vehaun, “this is another exciting step forward in Woodfin’s efforts to embrace and reclaim the French Broad River for our citizen’s recreational, environmental and economic benefit.”

RiverLink awarded Silverline Plastic a RiverBusiness Award in 2011 for their donation of this 4 acre parcel to the Town of Woodfin for public use and access to the river.
