The Town of Black Mountain Council approved funding to construct a sidewalk on Charlotte Street which will close a gap in the existing pedestrian network between Flat Creek Greenway and East State Street. This local project is included in a set of pedestrian and bicycle improvements approved by the Town Council in 2021, connecting Flat Creek Greenway to federal project EB5547-A, which begins at the intersection of N.C. 9 Hwy and Sutton Avenue.
The Buncombe County School System has granted the Town of Black Mountain an easement. The project was completed in June 2023. The project will aid in safety, visibility, walkability, and traffic flow in this area once completed.
