After much work and years of planning, the Town of Woodfin is ready to start moving forward on constructing the greenway and "blueway". The project will start in 2017 and is scheduled to be completed by 2020.
The Greenway will start in the vicinity of UNCA , follow the French Broad River and go next to the Craggy Railroad line to Reynolds Village. Although there is quite a bit of work ahead , the team is mostly in place.
There will be a wave in the French Broad just south of the dam, suitable for kayaking and surfing...yeah surfing. One of the models shown was a river in Hawea River in Austraila. Check out this video . I am excited about this.
The project is funded in part by the 4.5 million dollar Bond Referendum voted into by the residents last month as well as other donors.
There is still more money to be raised , however there are so many people excited about this project since it will benefit so many.
