On August 19, as part of RiverLink's 30th Anniversary celebration, they're hosting a panel discussion of the Wilma Dykeman RiverWay Plan. RiverLink Executive Director Karen Cragnolin and Dana Stonestreet, who were both key players in the creation and implementation of the RiverWay Plan, will lead the discussion.
The Wilma Dykeman RiverWay Plan consolidates 20 years of planning for the redevelopment of the urban riverfront corridor by RiverLink.
The Plan is a 17-mile greenway linking the French Broad and Swannanoa Rivers into a 17-mile continuous greenway with separate walking and biking trails anchored on the south at the NC Arboretum and on the east by the Blue Ridge Parkway and on the north by UNCA.
Throughout 2016, RiverLink will present a series of monthly events showcasing various aspects of RiverLink's history and contributions to the Asheville and WNC area. RiverLink's impact on the community is both varied and powerful. From greenway and park creation to cleaner water, economic development, cleaning "dirty dirt" and much more, RiverLink has been on the cusp of the region's evolution for decades.
The event is free, but reservations are a must to ensure room for all. Click here to sign up.
