To continue the theme this week.. Greenville has applied for a $100K grant to expand the Swamp Rabbit Trail through a north Greenville neighborhood this week, connecting a major traffic artery to the existing trail. And the connection point is right in my neighborhood! What I find most exciting about the proposed expansion of the trail is that it is evolving from a recreational, active community asset (which is great) into a legitimate mode of transportation (which is even better). The trail has revitalized communities and made it possible for people to not just get outside, but get to where they need to go (minus the car, the traffic, the cost, and the stress). That is powerful stuff.
The grant is judged on community support, so they have made it accessible online here. Just view the video, give it a thumbs up, and comment your thoughts!
