Winterville Greenway Master Plan & Fork Swamp Canal Greenway Plan
Winterville Greenway Master Plan: The intention of the Greenway Master Plan is to identify alignments and the desired length/widths of recreation and transportation greenways, and to guide the Town in acquisition and development of greenways. Trails and sidewalks are studied in new and existing sections of the community and include connections to sidewalks and neighborhoods.
Fork Swamp Canal Greenway Plan: The Town is evaluating the feasibility of constructing a greenway within the Town properties parallel to Cedar Ridge Drive and at the end of Main Street, parallel to Fork Swamp Canal, and to connect to Boyd Lee Park. The greenway will provide a pathway for pedestrian and bicycle movement as an alternative to vehicular use, and as a form of exercise and recreation. This corridor will assist in the preservation of open space and unique natural features, buffer non-compatible uses and areas, control runoff and flooding, provide protection of water quality, and provide a natural habitat for wildlife.
