“Walkable Community” Support in FY2017 Budget

The Zebulon Board of Commissioners passed the FY2017 town budget on June 15, 2016.  Included in the new budget is a one-half cent tax increase dedicated to making Zebulon a more walkable community.    The Commissioners appropriated $32,000 as Zebulon’s match for a Wake County Community Development Block Grant to complete the sidewalk on Shepard School Road from Zebulon Middle School to the Hwy 64 overpass bridge.  They appropriated $124,000 toward the design and construction of Zebulon’s first trail project.  In addition, Town staff has applied for an Open Spaces grant from Wake County and hopes to hear a decision by the end of July.  We will also be seeking other revenue sources and grant opportunities in the coming months.  If you have information on a grant program and want to share it with us, please call Zebulon Public Works at 919-269-5285.
