CARRBORO, N.C. -- The Town of Carrboro invites participation in an engagement process for the Bolin Creek Greenway to receive input on alignment options for segments of the greenway identified as Phases 3 and 4.
Learn more at our project webpage, take the survey, view maps, take a virtual tour, and draw a route or make a comment on a Wikimapping platform where public input is collected on a map. The project webpage is located at https://www.carrboronc.gov/2762/Bolin-Creek-Greenway ;
Town staff will be available at some of our town’s favorite community events that draw lots of people. We’ll be hosting tables with information, maps and surveys at the Carrboro Farmers Market, Carrboro In Motion, July Fourth and the Latin American Festival, and the Carrboro Music Festival. Information will be provided in various formats and languages.
We will also connect with people in less formal settings and will be seeking out participation throughout town at drop-by or pop-up stops. You may find Town staff outside your favorite grocery store, laundromat or hair salon as they seek public input on this project. Community outreach will occur through early October.
The Bolin Creek Greenway Conceptual Master Plan, adopted by the Town of Carrboro in 2009, plans for improvements to the corridor along Bolin Creek and Jones Creek to allow for walking, wheeling and bicycling, including action steps, project prioritization and phasing, land acquisition strategies, and potential renovation recommendations. The corridor for these segments of the Bolin Creek Greenway extends about three miles.

The planning area (Bolin Creek Conceptual Master Plan) starts at Estes Drive and encompasses the land around the creek through Carolina North Forest under Homestead Road. It continues to a point of connection with the existing Jones Creek Greenway in the future Twin Creeks Park that extends to Morris Grove Elementary School.
