The City of Asheville’s budget for the next fiscal year includes $8 million for a new fire station and more than $1 million in spending on the Transit Master Plan.

The proposed Fire Station 13 would be in the Five Points neighborhood on Broadway, near Mount Clare Ave. The budget allocates $1.2 million to the first phase of the Transit Master Plan. The city says the goal is to improve public bus service – by expanding service hours and routes, among other upgrades.

The next fiscal year begins July 1.
