Below are the steps Granville Greenways took to implement their plan:
1. Stakeholders invited to information session
2. Granville County conducted recreation survey independently of greenway planning process (821 respond Facilities most requested are walking/jogging trails).
3. Utilities (Progress Energy, Duke Power, Wake Electric, Piedmont Electric and Scana/Public Service of NC) and municipalities (water and sewer lines) approached about sharing information about easement locations. (Duke Power and Public Service would not share information for security purposes; sewer lines are often better options because they tend to run cross-country while water lines are often in the middle of streets.).
4. County mapped all easement information.
5.Consulted with NC Chair of East Coast Greenway Alliance
6.Survey about suggested greenway routes mailed to civic group, church, and municipal leaders (low response but all suggested trails were also mentioned during forums).
7. Community forums conducted in Butner, Oxford, and Stovall (32 non-grant related participants, 54 overall) See Appendix B
8.Consulted with President of NC Rail Trails
9.Granville County applies for Congestion Mitigation Air Quality funding to create two transportation greenways: 158 Bypass/Loop Road Intersection to DT Oxford, and Butner to Creedmoor
10. Assessment tool for potential greenway trails created.
11. Walked easements
12. Mapped trails
