This project is part of the Neighborhood & Community Connections (N&CC) Program. The N&CC Program is an effort to identify, prioritize, and build new, walkable connections to parks and greenways. The N&CC Program was designed to promote health equity throughout the City, using geo-spatial modeling and data analysis to guide investment in those communities which are most at-risk of negative health outcomes and most in need of improved access to outdoor recreation opportunities.
The proposed project includes the construction of a 10-foot wide asphalt trail from Mackinac Island Lane in the Battle Ridge North Community to the Neuse River Trail between mile marker 20 and 21. This connection aligns with the planned greenway corridor connection to Barwell Road Park and connects to the adjacent Battle Ridge community park/playground.
N&CC projects are funded through the 2014 Parks Bond Referendum and land acquisition funds, and include projects that are primarily focused on improving access to both recreation facilities and greenway trails.
