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 Crabtree Creek Trail (Mile Marker 3) to the future Sunnybrook Road Park to the south. This project was identified in the City’s Strategic Plan as a pilot project for Growth & Natural Resources Initiative 2.2. The project is being coordinated with a Raleigh Water Capital Improvement Program project. In addition, the project location is close in proximity to the future Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) stop on New Bern Avenue.
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.
