Edwards' bill authorizes new state park

State Sen. Chuck Edwards is seeking legislation that would authorize the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources to add a new park unit, Pisgah View State Park in Candler, to the state parks system.

Buncombe County currently contains no state park facilities. It is expected that land for the park would be purchased for approximately $18.2 million over a span of five years with the first phase beginning after the contract closes at the end of 2019.
