RAILS TO TRAILS GRANT TASK FORCE

Posted on by Katie Moore

RAILS TO TRAILS GRANT TASK FORCE – NEW TASK FORCE FORMED TO FIND AND APPLY FOR GRANTS FOR RAILS TO TRAILS & MOUNT AIRY CABOOSE PROJECTS FOR THE TOWN OF MOUNT AIRY. 

The new Rails to Trails Grant Task Force will meet the first Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at the Mount Airy Town Hall, 110 South Main Street.   The first meeting will be Thursday, July 7, 2016.   The purpose of this Task Force is to complete and submit the State Highway Administration, Transportation Alternative Program (SHA/TAP) and other available grants in support of Mount Airy’s Rails to Trails program and the Mount Airy Caboose by their 2017 deadlines.   Residents and property owners are welcomed and encouraged to use the task force meetings as a venue to ensure their properties and concerns are treated with respect and resolved to mutual satisfaction and/or benefit. 

Rails to Trails Information:  In summary:  It is important for Mount Airy to realize the Rails to Trails program provides huge advantages to our town as an alternative to vehicular traffic throughout the town. Currently, over 400 homes exist on the east side of HWY 27 with no sidewalks connecting to town parks, town facilities or schools. Another 300 homes east of HWY 27 have a hugely complicated, hazardous and indirect connection relegating the sidewalks as unusable as a vehicular alternative.

Every town resident who takes advantage of Mount Airy’s Rails to Trails program will be one less car on Watersville Road and/or HWY 27.   Downtown festivals and Watkins Park events always suffer from inadequate parking. The ability for 700 families to walk, jog or ride a bike to these events will provide relief to parking, increase attendance, decrease traffic and provide a healthy alternative to “turning a key.”

Other grants will be researched, written and submitted in support of a pavilion, light display and support of a “Blue Star” Highway project at the Mount Airy Caboose/Visitor Center, “Mackenzie.”
