It’s about that time, isn’t it? The leaves begin their inevitable shift from all manner of green to the popping bright orange, yellows and browns we have all come to relish. Everywhere for the next couple of weeks, if you’re outside, is going to be the right place at that the right time. Whether its enjoying farm to table foods or seasonal beers and ciders or some wacky city tours, Western North Carolina will pack the beginning to all manner of holiday cheer.

Early season’s greetings on behalf of all of us at here at TribPapers.

Local Business Briefs

LaZoom tours are celebrating the city and mixing in a little Halloween lore till the end of the month.

  • In February 2020, Michele Clark launched Wild Violet Mars Hill, a store that sells organic groceries, home items, a vegan milk bar, along with many other things. πŸ«– In this location, Mars Hill now provides clients with a smoothie bar, tea room, and a local health food store. πŸ§‹
  • LaZoom Bus Tours 🚌 provides a taste of Asheville for all ages, whether you are a visitor or have lived in the Asheville region for a long time. On the tour, actual, historical city tales are told, but LaZoom also incorporates humor πŸ˜‚ and mayhem. Regardless of the trip you are taking, a variety of characters abruptly board and exit the bus. They are sometimes cunning and pranksters.
  • When it comes to the region’s affordable housing dilemma, policymakers in Western North Carolina have been thinking broadly. For example, Buncombe County alone plans to build or protect up to 3,150 affordable apartments by 2030. However, some residents of the neighborhood are also considering small when it comes to actually building those areas. Tiny living spaces may be a potent tool for solving not only housing, but other community challenges, whether they are hand-built permanent houses or microapartments for people traveling to work downtown. 🏘
  • On October 6, a formal groundbreaking ceremony was place for the $80 million industrial park Blue Ridge Commerce Center, which is planned for Flat Rock. The project consists of four buildings as well as a warehouse expansion. The building work is anticipated to be finished in late summer 2023.
