Sidewalks for the Village of Misenheimer Update:
The Village must spend Powell Bill funds before June 30, 2011 or the funds will revert back to the State of NC. Sidewalks are planned to be built from Pfeiffer Place to the Village limits at the Substation on NC Highway 52 South. In addition, the Council is evaluating repairs and improvements to the existing sidewalk from the University to Pfeiffer Place. The Council is coordinating with Richfield to extend the sidewalks through a small portion of unincorporated property between the Village of Misenheimer and Richfield. The eventual goal is to have a sidewalk from the Village to the shopping center located in Richfield at the intersection of NC Highways 52 and 49.
Gladstone Academy Restoration Update:
The property on Wesley Chapel Road has been cleared of debris, graded, and the grounds seeded. The Council is currently researching historical restoration options and grants.
Carolina Thread Trail Grant Award:
The Village of Misenheimer, Richfield, and New London were awarded $20,000.00 toward the corridor design for a portion of the Carolina Thread Trail. The grant must be matched by $10,000.00 which will be shared equally by the three communities. When completed, the Carolina Thread Trail will stretch through 15 counties in NC. The Carolina Thread Trail will provide natural areas and recreational paths for running, hiking, biking, paddling, and walking. A completed portion of the Carolina Thread Trail is currently open in Albemarle. The Council will be soliciting public input and involvement in the next couple of months.
