Walhalla can learn from Hendersonville, Moss says

August 14, 2013

Today’s an important day for Streetscape. Walhalla is scheduled to learn just how much interest there is from potential contractors willing to re-work Main Street, across the downtown’s core business district. Proposals from design-build firms are due at City Hall no later than 2:30 this afternoon. A recent visit to Hendersonville, North Carolina has Walhalla real estate businessman Corky Moss thinking about the idea of narrowing Walhalla’s wide sidewalks downtown. It would free space for a Streetscape median. But Moss says Hendersonville, a magnet town for visitors, counts on its wide sidewalks to help its restaurants. He says Hendersonville restaurateurs use their wide sidewalks for tablecloth-covered tables under umbrellas—a sight that invites motorists to stop. Moss says he has urged Walhalla Mayor Danny Edwards to look at Hendersonville so he can see for himself.
