Through our Name That Creek program, RiverLink is seeking to give a handle to an unnamed tributary of the French Broad River that flows through the Westwood Place neighborhood in East West Asheville into the New Belgium Brewing site on Craven Street in the River Arts District. RiverLink has been collecting names from the community since November of last year. Suggestions have included “Big Wayne Creek,” “Penland Creek,” and “Reynolds Creek.”

RiverLink has been taking suggested names for months, and will now put the suggestions up on a website poll to allow the public to vote for their favorite. There will be a potluck on Saturday, March 22, 2014 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the RiverLink office (170 Lyman Street) to announce the stream’s new name.

RiverLink will provide cups, plates, tea and soft drinks and invite the public to bring the eats! RSVP to RiverLink’s Dave Russell at 252-8474, ext. 11 or
