Funding a capital project, such as a community greenway, is sometimes like assembling a puzzle: the vision comes to life once all the pieces are in place. We’d like to thank the NC Parks and Recreation Trust Fund for awarding the Town of Zebulon a grant of $90,230 to build Phase I of the Beaverdam Creek Greenway. This money is helpful not only for directly covering construction costs, but also in leveraging matching funds from other organizations. Zebulon Public Works is currently applying for $866,265 from the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO). If awarded, this will be the final puzzle piece in the financial picture, and it will allow us to begin constructing Beaverdam Creek Greenway Phase I. The application has been submitted, and we hope to hear good news this winter.
