New trail awaits county approval
Brian King
Staff Writer

The new trail along W. Cambridge Avenue proposed by the Greater Greenwood Parks and Trails Foundation moved one step closer to becoming a reality after Greenwood City Council voted to accept a portion of a right-of-way from the S.C. Department of Transportation, with one small caveat.

Council approved the acceptance of their portion of the SCDOT right-of-way only if Greenwood County Council gives their approval to accept the portion of the right-of-way. The measure passed unanimously. City manager Charlie Barrineau told council that the portion of the new trail that would be in the city would be about 300 feet and would include two crosswalks along with some sidewalk upgrades near the West Cambridge Park.

The trail would extend out to Bypass 225 should it be approved by county council. At last week’s administration and finance committee meeting, interim county attorney Stephen Baggett told council that he would be recommending their acceptance of the right-of-way from SCDOT at their regular meeting Tuesday night.

According to Dr. John Eichelberger, who spoke to county council several weeks ago, construction of the new trail must be completed by mid-October or the foundation would lose the grant they obtained to build the trail. The trail will be similar to those already in use throughout the county.

In other business:

Council unanimously approved the first reading of an ordinance that would require buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places to receive approval from the Board of architectural Review prior to demolition.

Council unanimously approved Barrineau to enter into a contract for new website services with California-based Vision Internet Providers, Inc.

Council approved a measure to allow for alcohol to be consumed in the street on Oregon Avenue for the upcoming Oktoberfest event scheduled for Oct. 17. The measure passed with a 5-2 vote, with Ronnie Ables and Johnny Wiltshire dissenting.

Council unanimously passed a resolution reaffirming the importance of on-the-job safety for the City of Greenwood.

Council unanimously approved the donation of surplus and outdated fire equipment to the Greenwood Volunteer Fire Department.
