OPEN HOUSE / PUBLIC MEETING
Town of Huntersville to host Downtown Greenway informational open house
Greenways are beneficial to community members because they provide safe and fun ways for everyone to get around town. The Town of Huntersville will be hosting a drop-in style informational open house for the upcoming Downtown Greenway project that will run parallel just north of Gilead Rd (Commerce Centre Dr. to NC115). The .6 mile greenway is part of the North/South spine of the Carolina Thread Trail and is the connecting piece to bring you into or take you out of downtown Huntersville.
Huntersville Town Staff and Dewberry Engineers Inc., the designing consultants for the Downtown Greenway, will be available during the meeting to answer questions about the project and design of the future greenway.
When: January 27, 2020 / 5:30-7:30 pm
Where: Town Hall – 101 Huntersville-Concord Rd., Huntersville, NC 28078
