Town of Zebulon Board of Commissioners, at their August 4th meeting, recognized a John Rex Endowment Grant to fund greenway master planning for the Town of Zebulon.  In late August, the Town will be requesting qualification statements from professional firms to assist with preparing the master plan.  The goal of the plan is to identify the exact corridor width of such greenways and to guide the Town in acquisition and development of these greenways.  The greenways should be an extension of the park system, link to other public facilities and parks, plus connect neighborhoods and retail locations.  These corridors would assist in the preservation of open space and unique natural features, buffer non-compatible uses and areas, control runoff and flooding, and provide proctection of water quality, plus provide a natural habitat for wildlife.  The estimated date for adoption of the master plan is June 2015.
