Support the Gills Creek Greenway
This petition had 124 supporters
There is currently a petition circulating in the Cross Hill neighborhood opposing the construction of the Gills Creek Greenway. Please sign this petition if you are IN FAVOR of the project and LIVE IN the Cross Hill neighborhood. Here is a bit of information that will help clarify the situation:
1. The project map clearly shows that the proposed Greenway path is on the far side of the creek from the houses on Burwell. See project documents here: http://www.richlandpenny.com/february-22-2017-gills-creek-greenway-project/
2. Answers to questions over the maintenance and policing of the Greenway are available here: http://www.thestate.com/news/local/article135763833.html
3. Studies conclusively show that greenways have a positive impact on property value and tend to decrease the amount of crime. Greenways in Charlotte, Fort Mill, and Greenville have been a huge benefit to local businesses. The Gills Creek Watershed Association, a group that has spent the last 10 years trying to protect Gills Creek, is in favor of this project. See their position here: http://www.gillscreekwatershed.org/gills_creek_greenway_a.html
If you are in favor of the project please sign this petition. It is important to let our elected officials know that the Cross Hills neighborhood is NOT united in opposing the project, and in fact many are in favor. Also, send an email in support of the project at firstname.lastname@example.org.
