A greenway and a River Arts District glass studio are two of six projects that have gotten Buncombe County Tourism Development Authority grant money.
The tourism projects are vying for hundreds of thousands of dollars in funding.

Last year, Buncombe TDA allotted nearly $5 million to such projects.
In all, the Buncombe County Tourism Development Authority handed out nearly $5 million in cash collected from a local hotel room tax.
