Local Matters: Sidewalks, bridges and Shuler

In this edition of the Local Matters podcast, Xpress reporters Jake Frankel and David Forbes discuss East Asheville sidewalk concerns with neighborhood activists Chris Pelly and Kim Engel ahead of tonight’s special Asheville City Council meeting on the issue. The duo also discuss last week’s City Council meeting (including the scope of the Hillcrest pedestrian bridge reopening and the controversy around the incentives granted to the Montford Commons development) and Congressman Heath Shuler’s recent visit to Asheville.

Tonight’s special meeting of City Council to address citizen concerns about pedestrian safety and sidewalks in East Asheville will take place at 6:30 p.m. in the Asbury Hall of Groce United Methodist
Church at 954 Tunnel Rd.

    New sidewalks are in conflict with City Council GREEN Agenda. Naturally draining gravel paths are environmentally preferable. Remember?
