Just a few more days to reach fundraising goal for THE GREENWAYS TO TRAILS CAMPAIGN

http://weconnectbuncombe.org/campaign CAN YOU HELP SUPPORT THIS GREAT GREEN PROJECT? Connecting the French Broad River Greenway to the Farmer's Market, Arboretum & Bent Creek Trails and Biltmore Park! 

June 1st through July 31st Fundraising Goal of $20,000 
Imagine being able to someday safely walk or bike from Asheville to the NC Arboretum and onto Biltmore Park or vice versa. One of the eight priority corridors identified in the Buncombe County Greenways and Trails Master Plan is the corridor between the French Broad River and Hominy Creek Greenways, along Brevard Road, past the WNC Famer's Market, out to the hiking and biking trails of Bent Creek and the Arboretum, and Biltmore Park.
The first step in making this a reality is a feasibility study.  Buncombe County has partnered with Friends of Connect Buncombe and will apply for a grant to complete a study of the entire corridor for greenways and trails. We are appreciative of the leadership of the County.  In return, Friends of Connect Buncombe is committed to raising the 20% matching funds necessary for the grant process. This study will examine possible routes for a single or multiple pathways.  The goal of this campaign is to raise $20,000 for the study.
We would like to thank the Blue Ridge Bicycle Club for kick starting our campaign with a $1000 donation!"The BRBC is happy to help Friends of Connect Buncombe start their crowdfuding efforts for a greenway along the Brevard Road corridor. This group embodies the mission of BRBC to make it possible for more people in our community to ride bicycles," Joe Sanders, President.
We would also like to thank Asheville Outlets for their generous donation in support of Greenways and Trails along the Brevard Road corridor. We hope many other businesses will join us in helping make this a destination road connected to our businesses and communities.
Motion Makers Bicycle Shop has also joined our campaign and "hopes more businesses will jump on board and work towards making Brevard Road a destination by enhancing the quality of life for its customers, employees, and neighbors through the development of greenways which can connect us all in so many positive ways." Kent Cranford, owner.

Please help us reach our $20,000 goal and share this page and video with your friends.  Together we can make a difference.

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT, DONATE TODAY!

What do I love most about Asheville?

Justin Mitchell of Mosaic Realtyby Justin Mitchell, Realtor at Mosaic Realty
I love Asheville for it's small town charm, big city amenities and a lifestyle that can only be found in a southern mountain town. As a lover of outdoor adventure, I have world class hiking and mountain bike trails to explore when I need an adrenaline fix and rivers, swimming holes and mountain top views when I am looking to relax.
As an artist and music lover, I know it takes more than mountains to keep me entertained, and Asheville has a diverse music and arts culture that is rare for a mountain town its size. I especially love that by living close to downtown, I have ability to walk or bike from my house an enjoy a amazing meal and a wide arrange of music and art galleries in just a few minutes.
The amenities and lifestyle are hard to beat. However, Asheville wouldn't be Asheville with out the creative and passionate people that make up this city. The rich cultural heritage of the area intertwined with fresh and exciting ideas of new comers to the area creates an environment that is uniquely Asheville. There's a creative element that you don't find in too many places and one that has encouraged me pursue my love of photography and video and combine it with both my passion for outdoor adventure and my professional career in Real Estate.
If you share this feeling, I would love to help you call Asheville home. Call me at 828-713-9400 or email justin@justinasheville.com

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass' favor.

    Asheville out of recession faster than most cities

    This month marks the fifth anniversary since the Great Recession supposedly ended.

    It may or may not feel like a recovery, depending on whether you got laid off or saw any raise, found a new job or didn't, or if anything else happened to you or your loved ones in the tough labor market. The economist John Maynard Keynes said animal spirits, those energies and enthusiasms, drive markets and consumers more so than mathematical formulas.

    But looking at the figures, Asheville has fared far better than most cities, coming out of the worst economic downturn of our lifetimes.

    Would you believe we're just shy of the top 10 in the whole country for the fastest recovery?  more...
