Mt. Holly Trail Update
From Jeff Smith, Trail Coordinator at Mt. Holly:

The City of Gastonia and the City of Mt. Holly are currently negotiating an agreement to allow Mt. Holly to use the Gastonia property for recreation. We will be sharing the land with the NC Forestry Department who is the official land manager. They will be using the property as an educational forest and will manage and harvest the timber from time to time. We will have to coordinate various trail closures during harvest time, but they will be limited to small areas (40 acres) and will only occur every once in a while. The Trailblazer sub-committee (Frank P., Ray Broome and friends from Mt. Holly and me) are working on a plan to indicate trail layout, construction, phasing and budget. We hope to present our plan to Mt. Holly soon and see if they can aid in the funding of the trail development. We met with the Mt. Holly Economic Development Committee last Monday to tell them about the TBs and about our plans. They are working to raise money for Greenway development and we are an integral part of their plan. They were very impressed with our efforts and we look forward to partnering with them in the future.
