First section of Jackson County NC’s “Greenway” will begin Construction next Month

For a determined group of Jackson County NC residents, a dream will finally be coming to fruition.  Since 2000, when the Greenway Commission was formed, its committee members have dreamed of making a ‘greenway,’ or path that would span from one end of the county to the other; this path would go from Cashiers to Whittier and would pass through each community and town through the county and use the Tuskasegee River corridor as its anchor, as reported in the Smoky Mountain News.

Committee members hope that this greenway will give families a place to safely bike, hike, and just enjoy the natural beauty of the area as well as preserve it for future generations.  Some questions that have come up include whether the trail should be dirt, gravel, stone or wood, where the entrances should be, and in what order should they be completed.  All these questions and more will be posed to the public in a series of public workshops this month for residents to vote their opinions.  The first part of the greenway will be under construction starting next month with a sidewalk between Sylva and Dillsboro and a trail through the Mark Watson Park.
