Hendersonville Lightning: Study takes a look at possible Oklawaha Greenway extensions

From the Hendersonville Lightning online:

. . . The Board of Commissioners will hear a report next week from a team of three planning and engineering firms on possible next steps for northern and southern extensions of the Oklawaha Greenway. The 3.5-mile greenway, which currently runs from Jackson to Park to Berkeley Mills Park, could be extended north to Westfeldt Park and a future Kuntz Park across the French Broad River and south to Blue Ridge Community College and the Park at Flat Rock.

Using a $96,000 Federal Highway Administration grant, the Board of Commissioners hired Asheville-based Equinox planning and design to evaluate topography, gauge landowners’ receptiveness to a greenway, hold stakeholder meetings and identify opportunities and barriers to greenway construction. The county staff will use the study to determine a final route for greenway extensions by working with willing landowners, a county staff memo said. . .
