Three Easements Donated for Steele Creek Greenway Trail

(June 19, 2007) At its June 19 meeting, the Mecklenburg County Commission accepted donations of greenway easements within three parcels along Steele Creek south of Westinghouse Boulevard. Although the length of the donated easements is only .4 miles, progress continues on additional easement donations that are being negotiated with property owners along Steele Creek and Walkers Branch. (See MAP.)

The Steele Creek Community Trail Committee has a vision of a network of trails throughout the Steele Creek community. Small steps will lead to a major amenity that all Steele Creek residents can enjoy.

The approved ordinance included the following justification:

The above greenway easements are part of an assemblage of floodplain along Steele Creek in southwestern Mecklenburg County between Brown-Grier Road and the South Carolina line. The initial contacts with owners in this project area were made by a citizen who lives and works in this area, Karl Froelich. Karl organized and has led a greenway committee in the Steele Creek community to spearhead this project. Due to his work in contacting and educating property owners along the creek, as well as dozens of residents in this area, this project is expected to be comprised primarily of donated easements to accommodate the trail along both Steele Creek and Walkers Branch. The above easement donations are three of approximately thirty expected to be secured for this project.
