Increase the beauty

A small park in front of the Basilica of St. Lawrence will be a valuable asset to downtown Asheville by connecting the Basilica with the Civic Center and the northern entrance to downtown and by making this a perfect spot to contemplate the beauty of our city.

Many call Asheville the Paris of the South because of its artsy community and cozy streets, but adding this green space will give credence to that comparison. If you understand the value of Pritchard Park, then you will understand the value of another such green space to enrich the city of Asheville.
