Did you feel the jolt? Open Streets Asheville hit the streets yesterday 80 volunteers-strong with over 50 local groups and small businesses giving freely to neighbors. The look on the street? Active community! The sound on the street? All-ages joy, exploration and laughter. The happy hum of community filled downtown.
Here at HQ, we are grateful beyond words at your response to our first event. You showed us 1000+ strong and more that Asheville wants streets that meet the needs of people. Asheville is on board with the Open Streets movement! All systems GO for Open Streets Asheville 2017.
