Pritchard Park Committee recommendations

This April report to Asheville City Council from the Pritchard Park Committee is the culmination of a year’s work to study the downtown park’s usage, as well as possible programming for it.

The committee, some of whose members are also members of the newly formed Friends of Pritchard Park, dubbed their program proposal the Pritchard Park Cultural Arts Program. “In general, the Committee proposes: using a nonprofit ‘Friends of’ group to fund-raise for the program; to fully develop the program’s parameters using information gleaned form the Pritchard Park Committee process; and to hire a professional arts administrator to activate and promote diverse and regular programming in the park. The first two items are well underway; the third item would come later in the process,” according to the report.
