White Lake Multi-Use Path

The newly appointed Town of White Lake Parks and Recreation Board held a second public informational meeting regarding the proposed Multi-Use Path.  This project has been years in the planning stage and is now closer as a formal application has been made to the North Carolina Parks and Recreation Trust Fund (PARTF) for $258,000.  Eddie Madden and Joey Taylor, consultants on the project, made a presentation to a full house Tuesday evening at White Lake Town Hall.  This portion of the multi-use path would begin at Waterford Estates and go to the White Lake Marina.

  The plan for the path is shown as a 10 foot wide strip of asphalt a safe distance away from 55mph traffic, designed for walkers, joggers, bikers, baby stroller, and wheelchairs.  Few questions or comments were made by the participants, but all hands were raised in support for the project.  There will be a public hearing in January, prior to the final application that is due February 2, 2015.  Mayor Goldston Womble shared with the group that there are two other greenway projects in the works that would intersect with the White Lake path on Highway 53. The Mountains-to-Sea Trail is a long-distance trail, for hiking and backpacking, that runs across North Carolina from the Great Smoky Mountains to the Outer Banks. The East Coast Greenway is a developing trail system, linking many of the major cities of the Eastern Seaboard between Seaboard between Canada and Key West.
