Citizens against NCDOT's current plan for Colington Road Project

This petition had 886 supporters

Please help us stop this! This past week We found out disturbing details concerning the Colington Road project that NCDOT is in charge of. The plan was to work on straightening some of the curves in the roadway and add a Bike path. This work requires the State to acquire property from homeowners, business owners, wet lands, and the Hill Top Cemetery. The state intends on taking land from the cemetery which would result in a loss of 120-180 grave plots. Families have been paying yearly dues on these plots to insure a spot for loved ones when needed.  Some of the plots also include areas that my family is buried; grandparents, great grandparents, and my uncle, who is also a fallen police officer that they will have to relocate from their final resting place. This also means that our family in the end would be split up and not buried together like the original plan.  I don't understand how the State can come in and take land from a cemetery.  People will lose land, homes that will have to be moved or torn down, businesses will lose parking and maybe even more.  There has to be another way! I am asking for everyone to please help us stop this project by signing this petition.

Thank you
