Nearly two years of careful planning will result in a world-class facility for Asheville bowlers that will be enjoyed for years to come. Tournaments will attract bowlers from around the region and country to come and bowl on this state-of-the-art green. The meticulous preparations resulted in 327 pages of specifications that were sent out for bid. The cost for Asheville’s green are arguable high due to the green’s location in a floodplain that results in increased engineering and drainage expenses. In addition to a new playing surface, project improvements include accessible sidewalk, storm drainage, signage, and general site renovations.
A huge thank you needs to go to club President, Bill Stoermer, who spearheaded the club’s initiative, monitored progress, communicated expertly, and doggedly pursued every detail. And, most certainly and with great appreciation, a big thank you goes to the Parks and Recreation staff in the City of Asheville and CDC Engineering for their tireless efforts in support of this project that resulted in a positive decision by City Council.
As Asheville’s tagline says: “It’s time to play your game!”
