Riverfront Clean Up

Progress/Duke Energy did their part today, for the French Broad River, by asking Betty Light, tree crew supervisor for Progress, to bring her local (haywood county) crew from Davey Tree Company to pick up litter along the west bank of the French Broad River.  With the help of a couple of front end loaders, a mountain of trash has been removed.  The River Arts District says THANK YOU to this rather large assembly of hands, making quick work, for the benefit of our entire community.

Ice House Demolition Underway

Work began Monday, Feb. 11 on the demolition of the Ice House building located at 91 Riverside Drive in Asheville’s River Arts District. The dilapidated property was purchased by the City of Asheville in November, and Asheville City Council approved the demolition in early January.
The demolition project is expected to take two to three weeks to complete. Special attention is being paid to recycling all materials that can be recycled. The property’s prominent smokestack will be preserved. Updates on the project will be posted at on the City Projects page.
Any questions or concerns should be directed to:
Robert Griffin, Director
Development Services Department
City of Asheville
