2040 Vision Planning for the RDU Airport (an 18-month process according to their web site):
The Umstead Coalition supports the maintenance and enhancement of a substantial trail system along the Old Reedy Creek Road and greenway corridor connecting the Black Creek Greenway trail to William B. Umstead State Park's Reedy Creek Trail. The Umstead Coalition supports enhancing the economic vitality that this recreation and forested corridor brings to the community.
Please let us know your suggestions as we participate in the RDU Airport Authority Master Planning process and refine our recommendations.
