In 2006, leadership in the City of Asheville, in response to outcry from neighborhood groups and multimodal advocates, set a goal of constructing 108 miles of sidewalk. To date, 18 miles have been completed. The city’s capital improvement plan speaks of laying down $132,000,000 in sidewalk along main roads, but that would leave only enough for one mile in neighborhoods.
