City seeking public comments on greenway extension

Jan. 25, 2013 @ 11:03 AM

The City of Sanford staff will hold a public meeting and comment session on the city's intention to apply for PARTF funds to develop the Medical Mile Greenway Extension, which will be Phase 2 of the Endor Iron Trail.

The meeting will be on Monday, Jan. 28, at 5 p.m. in the auditorium of Lee County Library's main branch at 107 Hawkins Ave. in Sanford.

If funds are granted, the city will extend the Endor Iron Trail from Kiwanis Family Park to Central Carolina Hospital — which will add more than quarter mile of paved walking and bike path, as well as site furnishings, exercise equipment and environmental/healthy living interpretive signs.

Citizens wishing to share their thoughts are encouraged to attend. Written comments must be submitted prior to the meeting and should be addressed to David Montgomery at 226 Carthage St., Sanford, N.C. 27330. They may also submit comments via email to david.montgomery@sanfordnc.net.
