Carrboro’s Greenway Commission should reconsider constructing a sizable sea of cement next to Bolin Creek.
Some Carrboro citizens petitioned against the construction of a 10-foot-wide paved path along Bolin Creek at the commission’s meeting Monday, June 21.
But citizens who favor the pathway were there too, arguing that it will open the creek to persons with disabilities.
The commission thus needs to strike a balance between affording equal access to disabled persons and the degradation of the natural landscape.
Extending mobile access to all citizens of the town is extremely important.
