The Carrboro Town Council passed the Creekside Alignment option on Oct. 17 for the Bolin Creek Greenway after receiving the results of community engagement process for Phases 3 and 4 of the greenway.
The alignment adds to the Bolin Creek Greenway and connects it to Smith Middle School, Chapel Hill High School and Seawell Elementary School.
The Daily Tar Heel's Sarah Clements talked to Carrboro residents about the new choice for the Bolin Creek Greenway.
"I prefer the Creekside Alignment. It got a lot of endorsements from people that I respect — the Triangle Blog Blog and the Sierra Club — so I went based mostly on their decision. It seems like it's gonna help improve transportation and bikeability, walkability, which are very important things to me, of course.”
“I hope that it happens and it can get through some of the gridlock in the town council and be implemented.”
“I'm in favor of the alignment that will connect the Bolin Creek Greenway with the most people in Carrboro, and eventually connect to the Chapel Hill portion of the greenway and eventually all the way north to the Jones Creek Greenway — and connect people all the way from the schools to [University Place] in Chapel Hill.”
